SHOPPING
 

Sibu is an excellent place to buy Borneo arts, crafts and curios. Particular items to look out for are Iban pua kumbu (hand-woven rugs), wooden hornbill carvings used in rituals, and silver jewellery.

 

Orang Ulu beadwork and woodcarving, and Penan blowpipes and mats. The best places to get a good bargain are the Sibu Central Market stalls, where you are usually buying direct from the producer, the Night Market, which has a good selection of Iban silver jewellery.

 

Visitors traveling by road should check out the Durin Handicraft Shop, a one-stop handicraft centre for the Central Region, 35 km from town just after the Durin Ferry and a few minutes from the Durin Bridge exit.

 

Note: Australian and New Zealand authorities insist that wood and bone handicrafts are fumigated upon arrival.

 

For more general shopping, the main malls in town are in the lower floors of Wisma Sanyan, and the Sarawak House Complex on Jln Kampung Nyabor. Good photo processing shops are found all over town, while the best bookstore is probably Premier Bookstore in Wisma Sanyan.

 

Budget fashions and household goods can be found at the Night Market, and in dozens of small shops around town. Malaysia is a major world producer and exporter of pepper, producing around 25,000 tonnes annually, of which 98% is grown in Sarawak. This valuable cash crop provides an important source of income for over 60,000 rural families.

 

Visitors should not miss the chance to visit a pepper garden. High-quality Sarawak pepper in various forms and packaging's is are widely available in Sibu.
