Mah Meri people (“jungle people” in their tribal language) – very little is known about their origins. Known by the locals as ‘sea gypsies’ or ‘sea nomads’, the Mah Meri are said to have been a nomadic indigenous tribe that fled from the southern coast of Malaysia to escape attacks by pirates, settling in 10 different villages on Pulau Carey island, on the western coast of Malaysia.
In this trip, you get to experience the traditional ceremonies of the Mah Meri people. From being welcomed to the village to a demo wedding ritual. Local experience that you can't find anywhere else!
