« Dayak Long-house Tribes – There are a number of local tribes still living in the traditonal way, in very close proximity to Kuching, in some of the lush jungle. It is possible to organize tours to visit some, mind you most of the tours are quite touristic, but that is intentional to prevent too much exposure to the majority of the other tribes who don’t necessarily want the visitors coming through. There is one Dayak Tribe home stay I was fortunate enough to come across, and that was Saloma’s Village Stay, where you can stay in the home of some local tribe’s people, and have a fully immersive experience. I’d highly recommend this to anyone interested. »
