Patau-Patau (Malay: Kampung Air Patau-Patau, lit. 'Village Water Patau-Patau') is a fishing village on the island of Labuan off the coast of Malaysian Borneo, that is principally inhabited by descendents of Brunei Malays who settled in the 1930s. Patau-Patau was destroyed by bombing during World War II but was rebuilt afterwards. The village's houses are built on stilts over water in its bay, and connected by wooden or concrete walkways. It is one of two such "water villages" on Labuan, the other being Kampung Bebuloh. In addition to fishing and general tourism activities, the village runs a homestay programme. [1][2]
