I made a trip back to Sarawak, Borneo over Christmas as my last excursion for 2015. Shortly after touching down in Kuching via the first flight of the day, we drove for almost 4.5 hours eastward to Batang Ai Dam.
We arrived in the afternoon and the sun was out in full while an orang asli was preparing his boat to be loaded with goods.
The Bidayuh Salako Village's longhouse in Kampung Pueh is located in the small district of Sematan. The coastal town of Sematan is a good 2 hours drive westward of Kuching (120km from Kuching). It's a pretty remote place here, though this longhouse provides homestay packages for tourists.
Apparently, according to what I've read, unlike Iban and Bidayuh longhouses which are built on high stilt, the Salako longhouse is relatively low. Salako is one of the 27 ethnic groups in Sarawak and they are mostly found in the Pueh enclave. The village offers visitors an excellent, warm and friendly hospitality along with nature at its best.
