Helpful Questions from Other Travellers
How do I get there?
All the trips start from Kuching (which can be reached by flight from most of the major airports in Malaysia, and a few international ones such as Singapore). The providers will provide transport from your hotel in Kuching to the longhouse. The time and mode of transportation depends on the option but it could vary anywhere from 2 to 7 hours and range from car to longboat.
Do I need to go with a guide?
A good guide in this instance is like a cultural (and actual(!) as some tribes do not speak English OR Bahasa) interpreter. Although most longhouse residents are very welcoming, it’s only fair to show respect by observing their rules while in their homes. A guide will help you do that as well as provide a rich background on the life style and history of the tribe.
Do I need to train up?
