I had a nice time during my tour in the Mahakam river. Visited nice places, such as Tanjung Isuy where I saw a long house. I also enjoyed to see the floating villages. Muara Muntai is an interesting small place. But, overall, not sure whether it was worth the long journey.

BIG Mall is a stylish and modern shopping mall, strategically located on the bank of Mahakam river, Samarinda. Your New GREAT Lifestyle. Come & enjoy!
This mall is, just like its name, BIG. Plenty of food and shopping choice. Hypermart, SOGO, Matahari, Amazon game center, Solaria, KFC and many more. But it seems unfinished with some of empty store. The potential to become the center of East Kalimantan shopping center is big. Just like its name.

You can use waze or google map to guide you to the location but direction sign are there also. It only takes 5 minutes from Samarinda city. No need to hike, the dayak cultural park located beside the road. The dayak house also located beside the car park. They only charge 15000 rupiah each person.
About 10 dayak dances are in display. The show is on sunday at 2 until 3 pm. DON"T BE LATE!!! Some of the dances are interactive. You can join the dancers and learn.
After the show, you can rent their traditional clothing and take pictures with them. But they will charge you for the pictures.

You can see villagers making fabrics by their traditional machine. You can also buy "kain tenun" from the maker itself. The price is relatively reasonable compare to the gift shop. They will tell if the fabric is tenun or not.
The location is equite hard to find. If you coming from the Samarinda city, go toward Samarinda seberang. After the bridge, turn left the go straight until you find big sign welcoming you to the "kampung tenun". Go straight until you find dark colored big house on the right. Park your car there, then go into the small alley beside that big house. You can find every house selling "kain tenun"
