The villagers are charging you RM 8 for you to walk through their houses but most people are not friendly and camera reluctant. The village is not really picturesque. There are a lot of construction going on. Houses have satellite dishes. Not recommended

We visit this after the mornig trip to Semendoh park, high taxi fee, but the driver acts as a guide in the longhouse, interesting to see the original house and the new builds which they use stine and steel instead of wood. Scary to see the collection of skulls... not sure it's original bur resembles truly the headhunter culture...

We visited Anna Rais while staying at a guesthouse called R&R Haven with a lovely couple, Roger and Rin. Rin grew up in a longhouse so it was great to hear her stories along the way. They have a headhunter's room with human skulls. It's quite far from Kuching so you will need transport of some sort, I don't think... More

Driven to long house by tour guide. It was interesting to see people living in the long house and life as it is without being staged for tourists. Very interesting.

Hello My husband, and twin daughters who are nine visited here today. It was an amazing experience, for all of us, especially my two girls who saw young girls in this village. The people are warm and welcoming. The small entrance fee goes to the village to help them. All the village live together in one long house together, young... More

What we saw could be classed as average nit sure what we expected, maybe to close to Kuching to have a sense of authenticity about it. Highlight was the private museum which you pay a few extra MR for but well worth it. Old guy who owns the museum is a bit of a character an interesting, freely gave out... More

I went on a half day trip booked through Armanoor travel which you can find in the main bazaar road. It cost 100RM My guide Abdul was very good, picking me up from the hotel and then driving the hour to the Longhouse. He was informative, chatty and his English was very good. On arrival at the longhouse you get... More

Visiting the Iban people was a life moment I will never forget. This is a real Iban community and we were able to fully interact with them. I quickly found out that you cannot take a photo of an Iban baby - they believe you are removing its soul. We stayed a night and ate with the Ibans - no... More
