Summary of The Day: Depart your hotel in Sandakan at 9am, heading for the village of Muhibah at Sungai Manila, just outside of Sandakan town. En-route, we will visit an oil palm plantation to see how the palms are grown, plantations are maintained and fruits are harvested.
The village has a total of about 200 houses, and a population of 2000 (mostly mixed tribes of bajau, sungai, suluk and dusun). Visit the village school and see how English and other subjects are taught, before arriving at the main village where you will be welcomed. Tour the interior of the house made of traditional material in Malay style.
This village is very special as it houses the Blind Centre for the state of Sabah. There are about 50 blind and semi-blind residents in the centre who live a normal life, and are taught and trained how to make handicraft out of rattan, bamboo and wood. They are also trained to become body massage and foot reflexology therapists (it is believed they make very good therapists due to their sense of touch). Visitors are welcome to buy the handicraft and try out the massages.
Visitors will be treated to a simple lunch of the local delicacy found in this area and expertly prepared and cooked by the local tribes here. After your experience, you will return to your hotel by 3pm.
