Sibu Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 140 photos

From The Air

Sprawling town of Sibu on a cloudy Sunday morning, flight from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The mighty Rejang River is shown clearly, and the town centre is compact, with houses in the outskirts.

Tallest Building In Town

At 28 storeys, the SanYan Building is the tallest.

Shopping complex is housed within, and offices occupy the higher floors.

The biggest landmark by far, surely.

The Rejang River

Big enough to enable large boats like this to carry supplies. Also to carry large timber logs downstream.

    Pepper WAS the main cash crop. Not any more. Ever since the depletion of our forest to the limber industries, oil palm IS now the chief cash crop. With the skyrocketting commodities prices we are seeing pockets of rubber harvesting activities ongoing.
