Sibu, Malaysia

Located at the confluence of the Rejang and Igan Rivers, approximately 130 km from the South China Sea, Sibu is a thriving modern town with a vibrant centre and a bustling, crowded waterfront. There is still something of the pioneer style about the town, and its people are direct, plain-speaking and assertively friendly.  Of course, their smiles may be partly due to the belief that Sibu has more millionaires per capita than any other city in Borneo.
