The town of Serian is located 65 kms from Kuching and is about a 45 minute drive. It is a Bidayuh town that has long served as a community meeting point where the rural Bidayuh villagers can exchange their goods and catch up on the local news and affairs. The colourful, thriving farmers market is roofed and sells a variety of exotic jungle produce, such as seasonal fruit (look out for the mata kuching – cat’s eye), edible ferns, sago worms, and bush honey just to name a few.
Serian is famous for its durian fruit, reputed to be the best in Sarawak. In the middle of the market there is a huge durian statue in honour of the “king of fruit”.
This tour includes a relaxing stop at the Ranchan Pool waterfall 5 kms from Serian.
