Once we arrived,we were greated by Joseph, a local guide in the village.He explained well about the history and the life style of the Bidayuh.We tried 'tuak', rice wine which taste good.Joseph also provides homestay in his house.The people are friendly and we had our lunch in the village, trying their food.One must try their tapioca cracker...yummy.

This is the most famous Bidayuh Longhouse. A friend and colleague of Serian drove us here and we shared a meal with a resident and the colleague. We learned more about the culture and received a tour of the various rooms in the house. We also saw some interesting grafitti near the house drawn by a famous Australian artist. Because... More

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

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.
