  Rumah panjang @ Long house
by ifam

the rumah panjang is a very unique house where mostly you can find in Sarawak and Sabah and among d ethnic groups who stays in rumah panjang is Iban.the house normally comprises of 20 to 40 families and the size of each unit of house in the long house is about 18 to 20 ft x 90 to 100 feet and all unit of these houses share the same common area, or alley which is longish and spread across all the doors to the individual houses. There will be space in between the base ground and the actual house for safety and also to breed chicken and others.
the best time to visit the long house is during the gawai festival. There will be so many attractions which includes dancing, foods and others
