Traditional Iban Homestay


Location: Batang Ai Reservoir, approximately 4 hrs drive from Kuching (Iban Longhouses often house dozens of families within their walls. This traditional form of tribal housing is more of a covered village than one house! 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)

Rooms: This is a basic homestay. Guests will sleep in the communal area and will be provided with a mattress, blanket and mosquito net. There will also be basic shower facilities and a toilet.

Children: Children of all ages are welcome although more suitable for older children

Our Opinion: Home stays are a fantastic way to experience the culture of the local people. Although very basic, all meals will be provided along with everything you need for the night. Your local guide will also stay on site with you
