MORE ABOUT THIS TOUR
This package takes you to the oldest site of human civilisation in Southeast Asia, the Niah Caves, located in the Niah National Park. An important archaeological site, the caves are also breathtakingly stunning, offering you a chance to step through time and see how life was for those who came before us so long ago.
