Drive through the fresh green landscape with its paddy fields, rubber plantations, palm trees and villages set against a background of lush forests.
Then take a river-boat to Gayang – a Bajau fishing village – home to an ethnic group known as ‘Sea Gypsies’ because of their formidable sea-faring skills.
Observe the quaint houses on stilts above the water, connected by a latticework of wooden walkways, and explore the dense mangrove swamps.
See the Bajau’s cleverly positioned fish traps and try your hand at crab catching. Find out if you would have the skills to survive as a Sea Gypsy!
The Bajau also create beautiful batik textiles and you too can try your hand at this craft.

Your hotel in Kota Kinabalu.
For your Gayang Fishing Village Tour from Kota Kinabalu you will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle and taken for a tour through lush green countryside. An English speaking guide will accompany you on this delightful tour.
On reaching Gayang Fishing Village you will enjoy light refreshments before you take a boat-trip to get a closer look at the dwellings of the Bajau people who live there.
The Bajau are fishermen renowned for their sea-faring skills and they live in houses built on stilts above the coastal shallows. A network of wooden walkways connects the houses one to another. Fishing boats dotted around the village add to the charm of the scene.
You will be able to participate in crab catching, one of the economic activities of the Bajau. The traps will be set at the start of your boat trip and at the end you will be able to check the traps to see what you have caught!
During the boat ride you can observe the vegetation of the mangrove swamps which provides not only shelter for numerous creatures but also protects the river banks and fishing villages against strong winds and tides.
Upon your return to the jetty, you can watch batik painting, a craft that the Bajau people have quite recently acquired. Try your hand at batik and bring home a piece of art.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Kota Kinabalu.
