Siniawan to Be Gazetted

Old Siniawan town, located in the Bau district about 30 minutes’ drive from the city will be gazetted as a ‘Heritage Area’.

With the gazetting process underway, Siniawan will soon be “linked” to the State’s Brooke Heritage Site and Brooke Gallery in Fort Margherita, of which all these sites will be upgraded to be turned into a new tourism product.

Siniawan, was among the locations for many key battles during the Brooke era and has gained popularity over the years for its weekend night market with its rustic setting attracting locals and tourists alike to sample its wide range of local food and beverages.
