We stayed at the longhouse with our 8 yo and we were hosted by Mr Joseph Enang for 3 days and 2 nights. Over the 3 days our host passionately shared with us the history of the people, culture and the longhouse.

Our experience were richly blessed when we get to interact with the longhouse residents who were by nature, friendly and generous. We get to see how they lived, worked and played. Among the highlights of our stay was the visit to the hot spring, rafting, jungle walk and visit to nearby waterfalls.

One of the most unique highlights of our stay was undoubtedly the private music presentation given by the reclusive Mr "Rambo" using traditional instruments (Pratoung and Sape) whom in our opinion is an undiscovered musical gem. He played the mesmerizing music from the instruments he made himself where all the materials were sourced from the local rainforest.

The best way to travel and experience Annah Rais Longhouse is to spend some unhurried time there where the charming treasures at this place opens up to you.

For me, getting to the longhouse was the best part. Myself and a fellow traveller hired a driver/guide to do a day tour including Semenggoh Nature Reserve and two long houses. Annah Rais was interesting to see, people seemed friendly considering the volume of tourists they must normally see (tourism way down because of COVID, few weeks before lockdown). The drive to Annah Rais was beautiful, the highlight of the day. We made many stops to explore and take photos along the way.

Visitors can enjoy a day trip to experience the new adventure at this longhouse; Bidayuh or Land Dayaks village which about 100km or an hour drive from Kuching city.
Studying the different culture ,heritage and way of life is crucial to maintain the harmony society ; alike wooden bridge connecting longhouse to the communal hall.

A unique experience to walk in a real Bidayuh village and see the longhouse. Though many of the villages have opted to build concrete houses, the longhouse is left standing. Though the longhouse is a little rundown, some rooms are renovated for home-stays. Good and new experience to walk on bamboo floor and bamboo bridge. It is better to follow a local tour so that the knowledgeable tour guide can give a clear explanation of the 'panggah/ pangah/ baruk ' (Warrior Hall), display of skulls, the canon with XXX symbol, the little museum, neighboring village. local 'tuak' etc. And I also enjoyed the hot spring which is just a short distance away.

I'm not sure what I was expecting but my visit to Annah Rais Longhouse felt like a complete letdown. This Bidayuh settlement is located around one hundred kilometres South of Kuching, for a small fee we were able to wander freely along the bamboo terrace between the ecclectic mix of buildings of simple construction. We encountered very few locals or tourists, refreshments can be bought at a store, also freshly sun baked tapioca 'chips' can be bought from a resident. Of interest was the Head House or Panggah complete with skull bones. Having my time over in Kuching I would not invest any time to visit Annah Rais Longhouse.

It was interesting to visit this longhouse and learn about their culture and traditions. We also bought some local herbs and spices and had a pretty good lunch.

We had taken this as part of our Orangutan tour. It is about 1.5hr drive from the Kuching city. I've been to similar rustic villages in Thailand border but this was just a let down. Nothing much to see. There is a small skull room with like 5-6 skulls hanging. They do offer homestays so we did bump into some foreigners who were staying there.

Did this trip independently, why waste money for organised tours. What a surprise, not a tourist trap like Sarawak Cultural Village in Santubong. Annah Rais is the real deal, a working and living longhouse community. Equally as good is the 25 km journey along Borneo Heights, spectacular scenery. Rent a motorbike/scooter and really experience. Recommend 56 Car & Bike Rental, Kuching 010-8025566.
