Swan City

As one of the three main cities in Malaysia playing home to a predominantly Foochow-Chinese population, eclectic Sibu boasts an intriguing mix of cultures. A tour of Sibu can take in dozens of temples, parks, and museums, plus the largest indoor market in Malaysia. Restaurants serve up dishes resembling China's (with a twist), and there are plenty of bars and pubs. However, don't expect the typical island welcome you may have grown accustomed to on your travels: theft and fights are becoming more common in Sibu. Plan your holiday in Sibu and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Malaysia tour planner.

Where to stay

Most hotels in Sibu sit in the city center, granting easy access to major parks and the indoor market; if you stay in the middle of town, sightseeing will be a snap. Do not expect luxury suites, however, and if you want a guaranteed quality room, aim for midrange accommodations. For budget-minded travelers, Sibu offers a handful of options. Just remember you get what you pay for, and the least expensive rooms are likely run-down and not too clean.
