It is about 40-45 minutes drive from the city center but along the way you get to see a good cross-section of Kuching. The place is a good way to see the living habitat and experience the lifestyle of the Bidayuh tribe. There are even a few units reserved for homestay purposes and trekking tours to the surrounding forests. You... More

My two friends and I booked a one night stay and were placed with Mr Edward. We found him to be very hospitable and made us feel very welcome. In the morning we went on a jungle trek that was quite taxing (or maybe I'm just unfit)... but we finally made it to the waterfall which was beautiful. The lunch... More

The narrow road leading to Annah Raise is very beautiful, it is surrounded by a fascinating nature. But Annah Raise was a disappointment for me because I live in Kuching since 15 months and I didn't see such a commercialised place except Sarawak Cultural Village! You have to pay money to see an ordinary 'longhouse', which is spoilt already and... More

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
