Kampung Dato

At the edge of Sibu town, along Jalan Kpg. Datu, there is a Malay settlement. One need not to go far to experience the Malay culture when in Sibu.


Most the traditional Malay houses can be seen along this approximately 2Km stretch of road

Some of the houses were built along the Igan River.

One can see the kids playing badminton or cycling on the road. There are a lot of bumpers along the roads. Probably to slow down the motorist and avoiding them to speed along this road.

There are also a few food stalls that sells burgers, kebab, drinks, kuih, snack and etc beside the road.

This place is best visited during the Hari Raya Celebration
