Sabah - Malaysia

Sabah is one of the 13 member states of Malaysia, and is its easternmost state. It is located on the northern portion of the island of Borneo.

It's still very wild which is the reason for my visit (along with the great food).
Malaysia is the country of my birth.
Leave those synths at home and return to nature.

This is a Sabah Longhouse. It's a great way to experience the traditional Malaysian Borneo rainforest lifestyle.

Longhouses represent some of the earliest form of permanent structure in many cultures. Types include the Neolithic long house of Europe, the stone Medieval Dartmoor longhouse which also housed livestock.

This is a Rungus longhouse, where each family have their own separate quarters off a common hall.

The start of our hike through the jungle in Borneo. Cool bridge. This place was once the domain of the Iban tribes who once practiced head hunting.
