Lamindana Package

Activities

Keeping true to our Lamin Dana's concept, all our activities are related with the idea to conserve, to revive and to show certain aspect of the Melanau traditional culture.
We provide:

1. Sago Experience: Among the native of Borneo, the Melanau people are the closest to this palm species. From Sago they derived their food, sustained their economy and has in many ways shaped their daily lifestyle.

This tour will enable our guests to experience first hand how and why Sago is reverred by the Melanau people. They can witness Sago felling, Sago processing and the making of other value-added products from it.

2. Cultural Show: - Among the oldest ethnic groups in Borneo, the Melanau people has over the centuries developed a unique cultural showcase displayed through their music and dance. All these are available to be viewed and appreciated at Lamin Dana.

3. Mangrove Safari: A chance to live like a Melanau whose survival was nurtured by the rich mangrove environment they live in for centuries.

A cruise in a longboat is a must. Witness the heavenly sight of fireflies which is a rare opportunity or simply enjoy the village scene along Tellian river where the Lamin Dana is located.
