Elevated bamboo walkway in Annah Rais traditional Longhouse village (Borneo)
Traditional longhouse villages are formed of group of houses built on stilts. The houses of a group are connected with a bamboo walkway that allows people to go from one house to another one without having to walk in the mud.
The Annah Rais village is obviously maintained in pristine conditions because it is a known tourist attraction, but many indigenous people still live in this village. Most inhabitants speak english because nowadays their main source of revenue is by selling souvenirs and traditional items to visiting tourists.
