The Iban people
Travel to Borneo offers clashes with the marvelous Iban people. These were formerly infamous headhunters. Today, they live in Borneo’s rainforests, where they live in houses built of poles and bamboo.
The arrival of the Europeans and the subsequent colonization of the island put an end to the Iban people’s main hunt. Instead, today they welcome tourists with tribal dancing and home-brewed rice wine.

According to Thedresswizard, Baku National Park on Borneo was established in 1957, making it the oldest park in the state of Sarawak. Here you walk through Bornoe’s rain and mangrove forests. Long-tailed macaques and whimsical nose monkeys are to be spotted here.
Both in the air and on land it is full of life. It’s not unlikely that a wild boar whizzes by, or that a heap of colorful butterflies flies over your head. Experience the park after dark with Tourist Travel.
