The longhouse if of the Bidayuh tribe. At the beginning they'll offer you Tuak ( a local rice wine) as much as you can drink. Then there is a room with skulls from the old head hunting days. A few of the houses are still in their old, traditional state but due to modernisation some of the house have been... More

The long house is simply the homes of the Bidayuh people. There are a number of amazing things to see you, specially there shrine to their ancients. The houses are built uniquely and there is a great sense of unity within the community. Everything down to the bridges has a unique Sarawak touch to it. You are also welcomed with... More

Try hard to keep the place to its originality of a longhouse setting. Visiting the place in the day can givie you a sense that the longhouse is deserted by the occupants. Not much activity to be seen apart from of a couple of old folks weaving to make rattan baskets other stuffs.

We booked a 3 days 2 nights stay at Annah Rais longhouse. In less than one hour you can reach the village by car from Kuching. We stayed at mr Edward s house. Although he is a very kind man, we would not recommend to make the trip. The longhouse is actually an open air elderly home. All young people... More

A great day to the longhouse and a wonder around the village. Recent years have seen electricity and water introduced but one still gets a flavour of the head hunters past life

Nice place to take a walk to see the place where the Annah Rais people live and it was indeed wonderful to have a home cooked lunch by one of the house host.
