An amazing place to visit and see how the Bidayuh lived in the past... You can also buy a bottle of their fine home brown herbal ricewine... ask for Edward at the little shop. This is a must if you are interested in culture.

Cultural villages afforf one of the local lifestyle of a place. This was what we delightfully experienced in Kuching. But first, we have to enjoy (or endure?) a shot of tuak rice wine as we entered the community. The longhouse community gave us a peek of how the Bidayu tribe lived before and today. It somewhat resembled a traditional condominuim... More

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....
