It's interesting to see the native longhouse replicas.
Iban longhouse - Most common type of longhouse that exist today in interior Sarawak.
Bidayuh barok - Large round hut with a central fireplace. My favorite type of longhouse.
Orang Ulu longhouse - Longhouse on tall stilts.
Melanau tall house - This house is even taller than the Orang Ulu longhouse. Gigantic house sitting on tree trunks. Marvellous piece of engineering.
Penan hut - Small house.
Come in the morning as it tends to rain during evenings in Kuching.Written 7 May 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- 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.Written 11 January 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Although relatively small and surrounded on three sides by roads this is a very colourful Chinese/Taoist temple nearby to the James Brooke restaurant. Still very much used by the local community as shown by the amount of incense sticks burning when we visited. Some very ornate carvings on the roof and also inside the building, worthy of a short visit.Written 29 November 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
