Annah Rais Bidayuh Longhouse

The Annah Rais Longhouse is an authentic Bidayuh Longhouse located in the hill slope region outside of Kuching. This Bidayuh village is accessible by road and it is the nearest native village from the city. Take this longhouse tour and expect to enjoy the encompassing beauty of the scenery around the longhouse.
The Bidayuhs are mainly farmers and they plant crops like corn, rice, pepper, cocoa and local vegetables for their own consumption as well as for sales at the local city markets.
The chief of the longhouse is called the "Tuai Rumah". They are mostly very hospitable and friendly.
The Longhouse is about two hours drive from Kuching towards the Indonesian border. The interior is very spacious, perfect to accommodate families. It is located in very beautiful surroundings. It can be visited on an arranged tour, which usually includes a traditional welcome by the residents. Alternatively, it can be visited individually. A small fee has to be paid before entering.
