Accommodation

The contemporary longhouse is a typical longhouse of the second half of the twentieth century as a result of the upgrading of the traditional longhouses as the natives get modernised.

The tribal farm hut is the typical farm house of the Bidayuh Dayak tribe. It was built of bamboo, sago leaves and round wood and constructed in the traditional manner on low stilt and maximum use of rattan vines strings with very minimal nails to retain its authenticity and traditional construction method.

It has earthen base fire place for cooking with pots or kettle hanging from a firewood platform and cooking frying pan sitting on 3 longish stones to raise it to allow firewood fire to be put underneath. Water for cooking and washing are stored in bamboo trunk but water to wash your dirty feet is used to be put in a jar covered with a coconut shell.
