Throughout the island of Borneo, discover beautiful landscapes. Join this tour to appreciate aspects of traditional daily life by meeting local residents, try your hand at the artistic ventures undertaken by villagers in the region, and sit back and unwind as you cruise down a mangrove-lined river.

Begin by heading out of the city on your way to a quaint Borneo village particularly well-known for its batik workshops, a style of art using colorful wax that is dried on cloth to create intricate decorative patterns. Admire the variety of designs and see firsthand how the process takes place before you have some free time to produce your own batik artwork.

Next, visit a pottery factory and admire the unique and historic motifs in the ceramics. Follow your guide to the river and board a small but sturdy raft for a relaxing cruise. As you drift down the winding waterway lined with forest and mangrove trees, hear stories of the people living along the river. If time permits, go for a swim or sip a mug of a popular drink Teh Tarek or "pulled tea" before it is time to ride back to your hotel.
