Sibu town on a Saturday afternoon - slow and easy
Our hotel is just next to Wisma Sanyan and it’s a new and modern hotel. Decoration is simple yet elegant. From our room, we could see the Rajang River (longest river in Malaysia) and also the Sibu Town Square. Big and small ships plying the mighty river carrying logs (the source of income for Sibu) over the murky water.

During our stay here, we visited the Chinese Pagoda, Bukit Aup, stuffed our self with lots of ‘kompia’, ‘kam pua mee’ and other goodies. It was an enjoyable trip and we are planning our next trip back as we drove back another 6 hours to Kuching.
