Rungus longhouses are traditional shelters for the Rungus, an ethnic group in Borneo, mainly residing in northern Sabah in the area surrounding Kudat. Due to modernization, the sight of these native homes is getting uncommon.
Luckily, you can still experience how it feels to live in these indigenous longhouses at Kampung Bavanggazo in the Kudat District of Sabah, Malaysia. For an admission fee of RM3 for Malaysians and RM5 for non-Malaysians, visitors will get to immerse in the interesting culture and life of the Rungus people.
With very basic features such as natural ventilation, shared bathrooms, bed spaces and mosquito nets, a Rungus longhouse is the best place to live a life away from the modern world. Drop the luxurious lifestyle and experience communal living in a Rungus longhouse in Kudat, Sabah, Malaysia.
