The journey will bring you through scenic countryside, paddy fields, villages, palm oil plantations; local stalls selling handicrafts and food items. Along the way, make a brief pit stop at some peanut stalls to get some munchies.
Greet the breeze at the Northern Tip of Borneo, also known as Tanjung Simpang Mengayau which means ‘lingering junction’ as it is here that the South China Sea lingers and meets the Sulu seas flowing from the East.
Take a stroll on the lavish expanse of white sand that comes complimentary with a breath-taking view of dramatic rocky outcrops.

A traditional native lunch will be served Rungus style.
Depart for the “Gong” making village, well known for local artisans and their exceptional skills of craftsmanship for a musical instrument rich with history and meaning.
