Gayang Trails

Just as the Bajau tribes of Kota Belud are known for their horse-riding prowess, the Bajau Laut people are known for their seafaring skills. For many years these so-called 'sea gypsies' have subsisted on the ocean and resided in makeshift houseboats — more recently settling into Sabah's coastal region in houses built on stilts. This 5-hour tour of Gayang village includes crab catching and a batik workshop, with round-trip transport from Kota Kinabalu hotels.

Full Itinerary

Take a morning drive to Gayang Village, which is one of the sites where one can observe the lifestyle of the Bajau (one of Sabah indigenous ethnic groups) also known as the sea gypsy. Upon reaching the village, light refreshment will be served before embarking the river to see the houses of the Bajau's. You will be able to participate in the crab catching which is one of the activities of the Bajau people and later the traps will be collected after the end of the cruise. Observe the vegetation of the mangrove which provides not only shelter but also protection against any strong winds and tides. Stilt houses can be seen along the river banks and also fish traps which provide the fishermen extra income. 

Returning back to the jetty, Batik Painting activity is one of the pastimes that the people have acquired when they embrace other customs. Try your skills on one of Malaysia's major collage industry and maybe you just might be able to bring back your priceless work of art. Transfer back to hotel.
