Panchor Hotspring, Kuching

There are a few hotsprings in and around Kuching. The nearest is probably along the Kuching-Serian Road (29th Mile near to Dragon School- Look out for the sign board - "Panchor hotspring" or "Air panas Panchor"). It is located near to Kampung Panchor. The hotspring is around 42 degree Celsius but not hot enough to boil eggs. Hot springs are believed to be good for skin diseases (due to high sulphur content) and for blood circulation. The Panchor hotspring is looked after by a Mr Tapok anak Rayun, the Ketua Kampung. Entrance fee is RM3 per person.
