Daro – Sarikei – Daro, by boat.

A two-way journey takes approximately 3 hours. Here in the rural areas of Sarawak, boats and river play a very significant part in the lives of the people. In the absence of tarred roads to connect them to the nearest town, they depend heavily on boats. People move about and goods delivered by this way.

The boats cruise the river daily with 4 hours interval between them.

Along the way it stops at this jetty,
