Kudat

Malaysia Tourism & Travel Information

 

Kudat gets very few foreign visitors. It has a noticeable Filipino influence. The town of Kudat, however is the home of the Rungus, a sub-tribe of the Kadazan-dusun indigenous ethnic group.

 

Their longhouses are a simple but sturdy structure made easily of materials like palm leaves for roofing, bamboos for floors, fragile barks for walling and flimsy timbers for supports held together by elaborate knots, which the people have been using for centuries to tie everything firmly in place. 

 

The longhouse comprises of several small apartments each containing a raised sleeping area and a living space with a hearth used also for dining. A longhouse usually begins as a single apartment built by the father. When children grow and start their own families, they literally add similar apartments to their father's unit, thus creating an extension which eventually develops into a longhouse. Extended family are also allowed, with permission to join in add and add on.
