BY OWN TRANSPORTATION

Your journey to Lundu should take you around 2 hours, depending on the route and on the driver of course.

a. Using  Sempadi route

From Kuching City, take the Satok way leading to the Satok bridge. Drive on until you reach a roundabout and take the 12 o’clock junction direction Matang. Follow that road straight until you reach another roundabout, take the 3rd junction next to Emart Lee Ling Supermarket, and drive on. Once Court Mammoth come to sight, turn right; should you miss the junction, enter the SMK Matang Hilir junction. Both roads will take you to a left turn heading towards Telaga Air Road, which is well indicated. This is a country, quite unpopulated area, where you can spot horses and cows on both sides of the road during your drive.

Sempadi ferry

Continue straight until you arrive at  the Rambungan junction on your left: this is the start of the rural Sempadi route, which will homage you with sights of local farmers villages, bailey bridges, papaya and banana trees, watermelon fields and palm oil plantations.

Once you see the palm oil plantation, you need to be alert since you will be near a T-junction: the signboard will indicate left towards Bau/Kuching and right towards Lundu/Sematan. Take the right lane and drive straight, passing a bridge. On your right side is a small road going to Kampung Stunggang Melayu Lama; take this shortcut if you want to get to Lundu faster..

Signboards along the way to Lundu

If you decide to head towards Sematan instead, ignore the side road to Kampung Stunggang Melayu Lama and drive straight until another T-junction will give you the last choice: left to Sematan and right to Lundu.

b. Using  Batu Kawa route

From Kuching city, take a new highway to Bau via the Batu Kawa bridge, all the way straight driving until a t-junction,  turn right to continue to Lundu,  then just follow the road sign.

Enjoy the drive.
