Contemporary Longhouse

Exiting from the first floor of the Tribal Museum you will cross over to the first floor of the Contemporary Longhouse building, typical of a more modern Bidayuh or Iban or Orang Ulu Tribes Longhouse Village.

However, as it is for public purpose to stay on short term only and for safety concern due to it being built mostly with wood, there is no kitchen provided in the room and was built more like a hotel room with twin beds, toilet, shower, fan, aircond and dressing table. This contemporary longhouse has 12 ground floor rooms and 12 first floor rooms joining to 12 attic rooms above each of the first floor room. For now, only 4 rooms are provided with aircond as Borneo Tribal Village central theme is for tribal experience and making this type of accommodation more affordable for students and NGOs.

The Ground floor has a covered area (ruai) of 18 feet wide good for swings for children and activities like dart games or competition.

The first floor open platform tanju has a commanding view of the performing stage at the event hall that one can enjoy watching the performance at the stage from the tanju of this contemporary longhouse.
