Sibu is the largest port and commercial centre in the Rejang Basin and the gateway to Central Sarawak. Located at the confluence of the Rejang and Igan Rivers, approximately 130 km from the South China Sea, Sibu is a thriving modern town with a vibrant centre and a bustling, crowded waterfront.
Our friendly guide would bring you for a leisurely stroll on a beautiful esplanade alongside Malaysia’s longest river – The Mighty Rajang River (~1600km long), watching how the people use River Taxis (Express Boats, Speed boats, Sampans etc) of all sorts and forms to move along the river. Walk on to a beautifully crafted Chinese Temple, climb up the Seven Storey Pagoda and take a panoramic view of Sibu’s waterfront life.
Jump onto a local river taxi cruising through the Rajang River (10 – 12 minutes) which bring you through the meandering river, viewing Malay villages, shipyards & factories.
Walk onto to the biggest Central Market in Malaysia – home to more than 1,200 stalls serving up a bedazzling variety of commodities. Seek out the live chicken stalls and find out how they are bundled with newspapers. You will get a real feel of how the people of Sibu live and get to see seasonal fruits, catches that are unique to Sibu.
