The hamlet of Long Siang sits by a timber access road in Lower Baram. The nearest large town is six hours away, if the people of Long Siang are successful in hitching a ride on a passing timber truck.
Long Siang is a ramshackle longhouse containing some 20 pintu or rooms. Each is home to one or two families. There is no water or electricity supply. Most of the rooms are cramped and dusty, and contain no more than a few sticks of furniture.
