On the mighty Rawang River in Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo is the city of Sibu. Roads being as they are in Borneo, the best way to get to Sibu is by ferry from Kuching. The main industry is timber, as can be seen by the scores of lumber yards lining the river as you approach. While there are many very poor people here and in the rural areas, there are also some very wealthy people in late model cars, living in big houses. Though the restrictions placed on logging have slowed the official rate of deforestation on the Malaysian side, business is still very good for some.
