Cultural & Homestays

Life in a traditional village in Borneo is a bit different to life elsewhere. Some tribes live in longhouses with communal outdoor space and divided homes for each family, all under one roof. Others live in detached homes surrounding a longhouse used for gatherings and honoring tradition. Elsewhere, people live in homes like any others yet the communal spirit remains strong. We’ve selected two homestay experiences in Sarawak, one in Sabah, and a farmstay option in Sabah where a family of four can have a house to yourselves and visit the local village. Each option is a unique and authentic way to learn about life in Borneo.

We recommend including one of these cultural or homestay experiences as part of a larger trip in Borneo. Please get in touch with our Borneo expert to plan your tailormade holiday.
