Sungai Merah Heritage Walk
The site of the earliest Chinese settlements in Sibu, Sungai Merah (Red River) is an old bazaar about 10 minutes by road from the town centre. The area has recently been restored and landscaped, with a pleasant walking trail along the river front (the water really is red, changing occasionally to yellow!) which leads through a quaintly landscaped park to the Wong Nai Siong Memorial Garden, erected in honour of the town’s principal founder and featuring a bronze statue of the missionary leader. Take a taxi or see Travel Connections for bus information.
