We took a forty minute shared bus ride from the Riverside Majestic Hotel at 9 am, just pre-book day before. Cost was 13 ringit pp and pay own entry fee - normally 60 rinit pp. Was an informative place with some fun activities for children to get involved in. However, everything was fairly low key, including those stationed in the... More

We visited the village on the recommendation of friends and it was totally worth it. Visiting each of the long houses to see how the tribes lived was very interesting and the music and dance performance was amazing.

It's like walking to a 'life' museum. It's more enjoyable to come on weekend but I suggest coming on weekdays for those who did not like to walk in the crowd of people. It's my second visits already but I'm still excited walking through the houses and watching the performances. Don't forget to bring your student card for discount!

Nicely done, nice longhouses. This living museum is very interesting if you want to find out more about the old culture of the headhunters and tribes living in Sarawak. Very accessible for elderly people and young children. They provide a nice show around 11am. Make sure you don't miss out. Pricer 60RM per person. There's a restaurant/bar in the park.... More

This was recommended as a 'must do' to us and we were not disappointed. A 45 minute show in the theatre, with some audience participation followed by looking at the examples of buildings occupied by the varied cultures in Sarawak in the recent past. Highlights were the Orang-ulu longhouse (with a spontaneous piece of dancing by some of the visitors),... More

Definitely a nice way to know the rich cultural background of the Sarawak people. But allocate a day to see all the houses and attend the shows .. but if it's raining then this place is a bad idea as the grass becomes mushy and ground becomes muddy. A must visit place

Great visit for our family of 10 pax. Children were excited learning bout the native tribe names and cultures and how they stamped their mock passports after each home visit. Climbing up the tree trunk made stairs were exciting for the kids. The show in the auditorium is really good and fun to watch. Keep up the good work.
