Staying in a longhouse in Sarawak is one of the best ways to experience life in Borneo and to encounter the indigenous Iban people and their culture at close hand.
Many communal longhouses are still decorated with skulls hanging from the rafters Ė trophies from previous inter-tribal conflicts. Head-hunting only died out in this part of the world in the middle of the last century.
Trips to stay in a longhouse are straightforward from Kuching and we highly recommend at least an overnight trip. A stay in a longhouse in Sarawak isnít a luxurious experience and the accommodation provided can be very basic. Meals are provided by the local longhouse people and are a great way to experience the local cuisine, often accompanied by rice wine.
Meeting the village chief and families living in the shared accommodation of a long-house can be one of the most memorable experiences of a trip to Borneo.
