Longhouse hotel
Malaysia (Borneo), Batang Ai, April 2011

Our hotel was built in the form of a longhouse. It is the traditional architecture of the Dayak people of Borneo. Common to most of these longhouses is that they are built raised off the ground on stilts and are divided into a more or less public area along one side and a row of private living quarters lined along the other side. This seems to have been the way of building best accustomed to life in the jungle in the past, as otherwise hardly related people have come to build their dwellings in similar ways: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_house
