Homestay Kampung Patau-Patau 2

The well known Kampung Patau-Patau 2 is one of the last remaining traditional water villages in Malaysia. The villagers are mostly Brunei-Malays who make up about half of Labuan's Muslim population. Traditionally, these people were fishermen, sailors and traders from neighboring Brunei. They continued their traditional lifestyle of living in stilt houses over the sea, speak a distinctive Brunei-Malay dialect and observe the elaborate Brunei adat-adat (tradition) in their daily lives. Their houses are brightly colored and linked to each other by wooden boardwalk complete with water and power supplies and sewage lines.

The amenities include streetlights, water taxi jetty, telephone, shops, handicraft shops clinics, schools and surau (a place of worship for muslims and it is smaller than a mosque) Visitors are feted to a sit-on-the-floor feast of "ambuyat", a traditional Brunei-Malay meal of sago (Palm starch) eaten with steamed fresh crabs, paha-paha (green vegetables), and a variety of delicious local fares. "Kausar, an aromatic fruit punch is served to accentuate the flavour of the meal. Kampung Patau-Patau 2 is located 3KM from Victoria Town. It can be reached by road or by water taxi. Water taxies (longboats) are available daily from 6AM to 6PM at the market jetty.
