ITINERARY

DAY 1

Tuaran - Tembara Jetty

DAY 1 - Tuaran - Tembara Jetty

Start the day with a short drive from Kota Kinabalu to the village of Serusup, Tuaran and enjoy a melodic Kulintang performance; a traditional local instrument comprising a row of small, horizontally laid gongs. After some refreshments, embark on a laid-back bicycle tour and explore the quaint water villages. Meet the local Bajau Sama ethnic group and learn about their lifestyles before stopping for a delicious lunch.

Full and content, it’s time to take to the water. Hop onto a kayak and paddle along the river to a picturesque lagoon before continuing to the village of Suang Bungan. Take a stroll along the jetty and marvel at the verdant mangroves, trying to get a glimpse of the wild animals that live in the dense forest. Get back onto the kayak and paddle to Tembara Jetty to rest and refresh before boarding a traditional catamaran.

Cruise along the beautiful riverine mangroves of the Tembara River and experience traditional crab catching before reaching Sunset Point, a small sandy island in the river. Kick back on the beach, relax or go for a swim, whilst watching the sky slowly turn into a deeper and darker shade of orange. As dusk sets in, return to Tembara Jetty where a traditional dinner including various local dishes awaits at a riverside café.

After dinner, head out again on a night cruise to witness the dazzling fireflies amidst the mangrove forest – a special ending to this marvellous day in nature.
