Iban Longhouse Batang Ai , Malaysia

Each family has its own section of the longhouse, often comprising of several rooms, including a kitchen. There is always a large communal area where the various inhabitants will eat and socialise together on a daily basis.

We can arrange overnight stays with an Iban family (and your guide) at a longhouse. Although the facilities are certainly basic, they are safe and clean. Sleeping arrangements vary between longhouses, with guests typically sleeping in the living quarters of their host family, and all accommodation has bathroom facilities. What they lack in amenities they make up for in Iban hospitality and most guests agree that the experience is a true highlight of their holiday!
