Places of Interest in Sabah: 1Borneo Rainforest

The first and largest lifestyle hypermall in Malaysian Borneo is offering visitors the unique experience of journeying backwards through time. Now, you can teleport yourself out of the modern world and into the ancient Borneo civilization at the 1Borneo Rainforest.

Explore the world of atavistic Borneo with your five senses by taking a stroll upon a replica of Sabah’s illustrious Tamparuli Hanging Bridge in a lush rainforest setting. Seize the opportunity to experience traditional ‘kampung’ (village) lifestyle and join in the fun with the world-famed indigenous dance as well as traditional rituals, such as the Magunatip (warrior dance).

Got adventurous tastebuds? Delight them with an array of Sabah’s authentic traditional gastronomies. If you like hands-on activities, be sure to try your hands on batik painting, jewelry beading, and rattan basket making.

At the end of your visit, check out the souvenir displays ranging from Sabah’s finest to other range of souvenirs from South East Asia. No trip to Sabah will be consummate without precious mementos to bring home.
