This was an amazing travel experience for us. My wife and I travelled to Menyang Tais longhouse for a homestay with another couple (from Holland). We had two guides from Borneo Adventure. It was a 5 hour trip from Kuching by van and 15 minutes by longboat.
We arrived mid-afternoon and were greeted by the Iban headman. The community threw a party to welcome us - grilled steak (grassfed!), grilled chicken, grilled pork, rice wine and whiskey. After a rest and a walk around the site (a working farm in the jungle), we shared a meal with the community (local dishes & ingredients). We had a Q&A session with the headman about their way of life. We shared some rice wine and rice whiskey. This is not a hotel - this is their home in the Borneo jungle.
The next day, a tracker and our guide took us on a trek to show us how they live, work and eat in the jungle. We also saw some sites of cultural significance.More
