Sibu Central Market Sarawak

Sibu Central Market Complex

This market is similar to the central market in Ipoh, except that this complex in Sibu doesn’t have a shopping mall or Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) occupying its top floor. Additionally, it is a lot larger.

On the ground floor, one can purchase lots of agricultural produces from vegetables and chicken. There is also a section for meat.

On the upper floor is the food court, and stalls that sell clothes, trinkets and second-hand goods. Didn’t I just mention that it’s almost the same as Ipoh’s central market?
