Exploring Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia – Bukit Lima Forest Park

I decided to visit the nearest Sarawak Forest National Park to Sibu – Bukit Lima Forest Park. The park is surprisingly close to the town centre, in fact, it is only 20 to 30 minutes drive away, assuming you don’t get lost – which I did. The park was tricky to find as it is […]

Exploring Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia – The Night Market

The Chinese temple […]

Car hire at Sibu, Airport…  The mystery has been solved!

Ha ha! I have solved the mystery of why I was unable to hire a car with Hertz or Avis at Sibu Airport! It is because Hertz and Avis do not offer car hire at the airport. It appears the other blog I read had it wrong. Blog Post Bonus: Download a PDF version of this […]
