Set on the edge of spectacular rainforests, the Hilton Batang Ai Longhouse Resort is Hilton’s only jungle property. Surrounded by indescribably beautiful rainforests by the Batang Ai Lake in Sarawak, the resort is just a 2-hour boat ride away from the famed Batang Ai National Park.

Explore the lush greenery, visit the neighbouring Iban longhouses and travel upriver in the same trail as Headhunters of yore in search of the elusive perfect picture – in this hidden paradise rich in culture, nature and adventure, you may just find it.

The first of its kind in Malaysia, “Treasures of The Rainforests” Photography Challenge & Conference 2009 invites you to join the search for the most inspiring image from the Batang Ai district.

Meet ten professional photographers in Malaysia – discuss and learn how to handle live, nature, wedding and portraiture shoots, join them on photography excursions to authentic Iban longhouses and nature hikes, share photography and learn the tricks of the trade.

Help in highlighting the wealth of diversity of Sarawak to the rest of the world, excite the imagination, and be a part of a series of national, regional and international showcases. Celebrate Sarawak’s culture, nature and adventure – and be in the running to win more than RM5,000 worth of prizes.

Hobbyists, Amateur Photographers, Freelance Photographer, Serious Hobbyists, Advance Amateur, Professional Photographers, Photographers or anyone who loves Photography

Assuming current room rates, I'd say around RM250 a night at the Hilton Batang Ai. Assuming the RM250 comes with breakfast, we'll just assume RM75 for lunch and dinner with drinks, non-alcoholic.

Transportation, maybe around RM200. But I'm just pulling these numbers from the sky, not including guide fees, other misc fees and whatnot.

So, minimum RM1000 for accommodation, RM300 for food and RM200 for transportation around the place; to a rough total of RM1500.
