  • An unique and memorable experience to remind ourselves to appreciate our sight and what we have. The service was good and exceptional even it's in the dark. Thanks to Lynn, Pang and Looi for guided...  more »
  • A great way to experience the other senses when the sight is turned off. Since this walk in the dark with a cane, following tactiles and green light signals, my kids (4 & 7yo) are more aware of these....  more »

  • Amazing experience!! I would highly recommend EVERYONE to come here at least once. It's a very good lesson on how the unsighted live and adapt to a world that takes sight for granted. Very eye-opening and humbling. We take many things for granted, but when robbed of sight, our whole world changes. Kudos to the entire crew at DID for raising awareness, bringing a great experience, and overall being great hosts to us. Definitely recommended!
  • If I could give this experience six stars, then I would. It is perhaps the most moving experience I've had in many years. You spend 45 minutes going through a village scenario in total darkness, as though you were blind. Crossing a bridge, visiting a market and finally buying a coffee at the coffee shop. There are two blind people within this setting who play a market seller and the Coffee Shop owner.You have a stick to help you along and the voice of your guide. Buying the real coffee, made in the dark, was when I learnt how to know what type of currency note I was paying with, as each denomination has a different length. I was taken into the darkness by a sighted staff member, so didn't see my guide (Antira) until the end of the tour. She was amazing, and we had time to chat whilst I was having my coffee in total darkness at the end. She was born blind in a small village in Sarawak, so when I said it must have been difficult coping with the darkness, she said, "I don't know what darkness is". It is RM30 (around £6), for this experience but totally worth it, and the money is going to help blind people in Malaysia.
