Stayed at Rungus Longhouse for one night after doing a day's cycling trip from Kudat to the most northern tip of Borneo. A really interesting place to stay for the night unlike anything I have ever stayed in before! The entire house is made of bamboo and sits on stilts. You take your shoes off before doing in. There are communal showers and toilets outside the longhouse. The rooms are clean basic...mattress, pillow and mosquito net. There are gaps between the bamboos so you can see into the other rooms and also down to the ground below but it's all part of the fun! Not the most restful night's sleep as there were a lot of animal and insect noises in the night, but it was a really fun experience. The food that was cooked for each meal was fresh and made with local ingredients. It was delicious! The local kids perform a dance show in the evening and get you to join in. Would definitely recommend this place to stay as something unique and different to do for a night!
