Once infamously known as the Land of the Headhunters, a trip to Borneo will be incomplete without a visit to the homes of these once fearsome tribal warriors who remain as heroes in protecting their land which they highly safeguard for ancestral rights. These last few authentic longhouses are what remains in the interiors of Borneo which families of the old and young get through their lives as farmers and forest foraging. A visit enables you to experience the simple life of longhouse dwellers where visitors are nowadays warmly welcome into their daily life. At the longhouse guests are entertained by a simple cultural dance followed by servings of traditionally brewed rice wine. Although highly skilled in the art of war and defense, these dwellers are as well excellent craftsmen in weaving, woodcarving and longboat building which is one of the modes of transportation to commute along the mighty rivers and lakes. Therefore, a trip to the longhouse will enquire you to travel the same to reach the interiors.

Other activities at the longhouse are blowpipe shooting and a walk exploring the surroundings of the longhouse and nearby farms.
