For first time travellers, its interesting to visit the Long House
but it would be good that some maintenance is taken care off
such as roofs are repaired and rubbish are cleared

Combined this trip with a visit to the Crocodile farm and the Orangutan Reserve. This long house is probably the most well known one in Kuching and relatively near Kuching town. Here, one can see the intricate ways in which the longhouse was built, and living conditions.Can be quite hot in the day so do remember to bring water and umbrellas.

We went in December, and walked around the longhouse, but I hear the best time to visit is during harvest. You will see how local tribes lived in traditional spaces, even though this grouping has become more modern, metal roofs and some cement structures (modern amenities like Cable, televisions, washing machines, etc.) There are also homestays in this grouping of Longhouse if you want to try to stay in a communal atmosphere. There are chickens, roosters, cats and dogs running about. You will see cocoa trees, rambutan, banana, women winnowing rice and drying peanuts, fish, soaking pitcher plants and steaming food in bamboo. There is also a main house where there is a cage full of human skulls hanging above a fire pit. This will be burned in a ceremony during harvest. Watch out for the local rice wine upon arrival; it is very easy to go down and you may miss a step on the bamboo walkways if you partake in too much wine. :)

Learnt a lot about how the people in long houses live. Met some very friendly native people there who offered me fruit for free. I also tried wild durian for the first time here.

This is a functional longhouse with villages/families and extended families living in them. During the day time, the men will work in the field, so only the old and the young ones are around. Not to mention cats. There are a few longhouses in this village.

Be sure to get a guide for your longhouse tour so that you understand more about the history. We went to the Semenggoh Nature Reserve in the morning and then drove here. Be sure you have enough petrol in your car to and fro as there is no petrol kiosk along the way from Semenggoh Nature Reserve to Annah Rais. We have to detour 30 mins to fill up our tank. If you are going from Semenggoh Nature Reserve, be sure to have some lunch first before going to Annah Rais, as there is only a SMALL LOCAL food stall there, not for fussing people.
