It is located at the confluence of the Rajang and Igan Rivers, some 60 kilometres from the ocean and approximately 183.3 kilometres (114 mi) east-north-east of the state capital Kuching.[2] The population is dominated by Chinese especially the Fuzhou as well as indigenous MelanauMalay, and Iban.

Sibu is the main tourist gateway to the Upper Rajang River, with its small riverine towns and its many Iban and Orang Ulu longhouses.[3]

Sibu now boasts thelargest town square in Malaysia,[3] and the tallest building in Sarawak – the Sanyan Tower (三洋大厦,”Wisma Sanyan” in the official Malay language), a newly refurbished waterfront and a large number of public parks. Sibu also has university-level courses offered by Laila Taib College (previously known as United College Sarawak), which has built a campus on the site of the old Sibu airport. In 2010,Sarawak Government had announced that Sibu will have its own Sarawak Islamic Complex Building, the second in the state after Kuching.
