Carey Island






"Pulau Carey is famous for two things great seafood and the indigenous Mah Meri (pronounced Mak Miri)."

Pulau Carey is famous for two things - great seafood and the indigenous Mah Meri (pronounced Mak Miri) people who have a reputation for some of the world's finest wooden mask.

Located just off the mainland, they have assimilated into modern life, with jobs in the nearby plantations and farms, but they retain their unique culture and way of life. Apart from exhibitions of their traditional dances and music, the Mah Meri are particularly known for their votive sculptures, fashioned from a kind of swamp hardwood known as "Nyireh Batu".
