The RH Hotel in Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

By on April 20, 2014 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

I stayed in the RH for four nights and wasn’t overly impressed. The breakfast was very poor, a lot of the food was not that hot, and the choice wasn’t that great. Even the orange juice was odd (it was orange and very sweet, and I doubt it had been near an orange!). The room […]

Exploring Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

This afternoon I went for a walk around town to see what was what…. In my wanderings I found the tourism office (the guy in there was very helpful, but he didn’t really have a lot to promote!), a Chinese temple, a really good large covered market, and the local ferry terminal. The Chinese temple […]

If you have […]
