KUCHING, Feb 12 (Bernama) – The village of Serikin, situated at the Malaysia-Indonesia border about 65 km from here, is a popular tourist destination, thanks to thriving cross-border trading activities.

On weekends, many visitors head to Serikin, which can be reached in 90 minutes by road from here via the former gold mining town of Bau and several rustic Bidayuh villages interspersed with a limestone landscape that includes the Fairy Cave and Wind Cave.

Apart from boosting the local economy, the Serikin bazaar is also an avenue for Indonesian traders, mostly from West Kalimantan, enticed by the favourable currency exchange rates to earn their living selling various products at bargain prices.
