We stayed at RH hotel (4*) which is just next to the tallest building in Sibu, Wisma Sanyan which houses Parkson Ria.
The hotel lobby
CNY decor in the lobby
Nicely packed soaps and shampoos:
Most of the streets in Sibu are one way streets so for us the first timer driver to Sibu, it is turning round and round to find our destinations. One funny thing is : when we ask our Sibu Foochows relatives how to drive from Lanang bridge to RH hotel: the answer we get is " very easy, just drive straight from Lanang bridge.
With that instruction , you can never reach RH hotel. Can see the building but can never reach it. You should drive straight and turn left when you reach the fire station, then drive straight and turn left around the corner of the Tua Pek Kong temple in town by the riverside and reach Rajang Port Authority and take the roundabout , turn and reach the Sibu Town Square then turn into RH hotel. that should be the proper instruction...no wonder they are called Fool-chows!
Didn't get to see much of Sibu cos most of the shops were closed on that day. Luckily Wisma Sanyan was open so we had lunch at Pizza Hut there. We tried the new 24 Golden happiness cheesy crown and the meatball spaghetti. The taste was good and chessy as claimed.
