The Borneo Sarawak, Sibu Town trip with Wilson Chin

Sibu is an inland town, and the capital of Sibu District in Sibu Division, Sarawak, east Malaysia. It is located at the confluence of the Rajang and Igan Rivers, some 60 kilometres from the ocean and approximately 183.3 kilometres east-north-east of the state capital Kuching. The population is dominated by Chinese especially the Fuzhou as well as indigenous Melanau, Malay, and Iban.

The Sibu town area have a lot of Chinese, and most of them operate business here. Its safe to walk alone as Sibu has a low crime rate compare to other big cities on West Malaysia. The people in the town, they have operate business for few generation.

So the business are passdown from father to son, and from son to their son again. So the other business operator knows each other very well, and they also know the person on the next lot, and the next, and the entire district. And that's what makes this place so happening, and people are so friendly.

Friends are gathering together to drink coffee, dinner, chit chat, they hang out together almost everyday. The rhythm here are very relaxing. No crowded traffic, not much pollution, well... although some places are a bit dirty. But overall its still a very nice place.
