Have an adventure full of culture and nature! Your first stop will be at Mari Mari Cultural Village. When you arrive, you’ll be briefed on the Do’s and Don’ts of the village. Enjoy a guided tour of all the traditional houses and learn about the history, bamboo cooking demonstration, fire making demonstration, blowpipe demonstration and traditional dances in a remote forest setting. After the cultural performance, you will be led to the Dining Hall where you will have about 15 minutes to shop, take photos or just relax and enjoy the natural surroundings. Enjoy delectable traditional and fusion cuisines for lunch before the end of the tour.
 
After lunch, you will depart for the Garama river for a 1 hour and 45 minutes river cruise, in search of Proboscis monkeys and other wildlife along the riverbank. A buffet dinner will be served among the glittering lanterns that light up the area. If the weather permits, you’ll be able to catch glimpses of fireflies slowly lighting up and decorating the mangrove trees.
 
This is where your tour ends. But there’s one more surprise. Along the way to your coach, you’ll be accompanied by the sounds of crickets happily singing you a safe journey home.
