The Borneo Travel Pioneer Since 1968
Day 1: Depart from the hotel and begin your adventure to experience the hospitable and friendly Ibans who treasure the unique traditional lifestyle living in a village under one roof and preserving their rich culture and traditions. The drive will go past scenic greenery, fields of pepper and rubber. Your first stop will be Serian Town where there will be a visit to the farmer’s market. Lunch will be at a local restaurant. Continue to Lemanak River where a delightful 40 minute longboat ride will take you to an Iban longhouse in which a guided tour will be done. Dinner will be served at a guesthouse. The fun starts when night falls with a fabulous traditional ceremonial dance of the tribe to welcome you. Merry-making with ‘tuak’ (rice wine) ensues. Note: Accommodation at the guesthouse is very basic.
Day 2: After breakfast, witness and participate in the blowpipe demonstration. Continue with an enlightening nature walk for an opportunity to learn about some medical plants, edible fruits and leaves, and see a few game traps used in the past. Proceed down river by longboat and continue overland for your return journey back to Kuching. Lunch is served en-route.
