I brought 2 friends to visit this longhouse today and they were actually surprised the longhouse didn't look like what they expected it to be. Indeed, this longhouse is somewhat different from what we have seen in our younger days. A few of the "houses" here are made of bricks also and many have upgraded to have "Astro" channels already....

We booked a one night stay in the village and would recommend this experience to anyone wanting to get a taste of Malaysias history and village lifestyle. We were welcomed in to the community and were provided meals/drinks not included in the websites itinerary so really felt like Edward went above and beyond. We were provided a guide when we... More

Nice to have a look when you're somewhere around. Gives an idea of the life in the past. Bit in the present, nothing at all. I won't go that way if there's nothing else in the neigborhood.

We went there on a family trip with some of my colleagues as end of year reward for loyal staffs. I've been looking a -quite deep in the forest- place for holiday, and also easy to reach as I only have short holiday every year. At the moment it was a bit annoying cos far from city center, it took... More

My only gripe is the no-photography for certain area which is unusual when the longhouses are opened for tourists and entrance fees are actually! We were shouted at when our group took a photo shot of the residents having their meal. It may make sense to post sign where photography is restricted to avoid ill incidents. Other than this unfortunate... More

We arrived at Anna Reis and were made to feel at home straight away. the people are welcoming and friendly. The houses are basic and simple and that is what we hoped for, this is not glamorous touristing at all - you are staying in someones house. We were taken around the village on a tour by one of the...

We decided to come to Annah Rais Longhouse because of the murals and the nearby hotspring. After the hotsrping, we drove back to the longhouse ticketing booth and paid RM8/adult and RM5/kid for a free and easy visit. Two very friendly ladies greeted us with small glasses of Tuak, which tasted sweet and mild. They assured us that we wouldn't... More

A short, but fascinating short visit with a taste of the local alcoholic beverage a peek into the culture and development of these tribes people. It is an interesting mix of the old and the new. Not least, when a friend asked about whether the chief lived in the "Headhouse", was surprised to find that it was literally the house... More
