Sibu Mural Arts

We always see the news and article of Penang, Ipoh mural arts. Now we have Sibu own version. I would recommend everyone go and check the arts(the wall painting). It is interesting by looking at these wall paintings, lot of story you can get from the life (food and culture) of Sibu. This also helps to promote tourism in Sibu.
