Experience Rubber Tapping
Tour Code: BT003 Duration: 3 hours Price: RM60.00 per person Minimum Person: 2

Rubber trees were brought into Malaysia and thereafter Sabah by the British North Borneo Company from Brazil in the late 19th century. At one time before the dawn of palm oil trees, rubber was the mainstay of the economy of the state. Today, with rubber prices fetching a good price, there is a re-emergence of interest in this crop. In this village of Tempurung, there are quite a large number of rubber trees and some families are dependent on this crop for their livelihood. An educational tour of how rubber trees are tapped for their latex and processed can be arranged.
