Iban Longhouse

Scroll

A highlight for many visitors to Sarawak is a stay with one of the tribes in a traditional longhouse, home to many families under one roof. Sarawak has over 40 ethnic groups, each with its own traditions, culture and language. The Iban tribe (also known as Sea Dayaks because of their history as pirates and fishermen) were once feared as head hunters, but are now better known for their traditional weavings, silver craft, wood carvings, beadwork and friendly nature.

The accommodation is in the Iban’s rustic longhouses, most equipped with some modern facilities such as electricity. There will be a designated guest mattress with mosquito net and the family will provide you with dinner and drinks.

Thoroughly enjoyable, the length of time spent at each destination was about right, so we didn’t feel too rushed whilst trying to squeeze in a number of destinations…. Very impressed with the service from yourselves in arranging this (& previous) holidays usually with little “notice” and limited budget. Thank you.
