Nice to see the long house but it could be much more interesting - perhaps with some locals in traditional dresses, somebody telling about life here... We got rice wine at the entrance, saw sme skuls and took a walk around... There were just a few chickens, cats and some people at the local bar...Not interested in strangers

We booked via one of our guide, a two days one night at Annah Rais Longhouse. The truth is, it might be suprising at first. It doesnt quit look like a typical longhouse isnt? I thoughout it would be all made of bamboo, actually it appears to have new concrete structures. It seems like hundred of people are living here... More

A row of old wooden houses mixed with some new concrete structures on stilts and connected by different types of flooring. The house of the village head is telling a small story but further you can only buy some local made products which are better presented in town. We had a walk through it but didn't feel any interaction with... More

Surrounded by mountains, rivers and trees at the foothill of Borneo Highlands near the border to Kalimantan. We are surprised to see the storage huts and bark-covered walls of Annah Rais Bidayuh longhouse village covered in mural paintings from street muralist Ernest Zacharevic.

My husband and I visited this longhouse as part of a cycling tour we were on. Not sure why it is called an "adventure". Thank goodness we had a guide with us because no guidance is provided by the longhouse itself. The only resident we saw was the person who had the sign in logbook. It is true that the... More

Saw the longhouse and learned how the native stayed in long house..although it could do well with some form of welcome activities..pretty boring overall..

i visited the Annas Rais Longhouse for a day trip. The experience was memorable and inexpensive. Though it is not as authentic, it is close enough to Kuching for a day trip. For urbanites like us and the young kids, it was an eye opener to the different culture in Sarawak. A visit to Mr Edward's house ( No. 71)... More

First experience to come here. There's no one to talk you through the village or tell you which buildings you can enter. Impressed with the house still keep a skull warrior. The house still retain the traditional shape made of bamboo.

We had high expectations when we went to visit Annah Rais. We were a bit disappointed because because of the many tourists in tourgroups. It was very interesting to see how still quite a few people live in longhouses (if not for the same tourists like we were..)
