Favorite thing: The Sibu archipelago or group is made up of Pulau Sibu (Besar) and a cluster of islands, namely Pulau Sibu Tengah, Pulau Sibu Hujung, and Pulau Sibu Kukus (Coral Island). Some folks also included nearby Pulau Tinggi into the group. There are a number of resorts of Pulau Sibu Besar and only 1 on Pulau Sibu Tengah. Pulau Sibu Tengah was originally uninhabitated.
Peninsula Malaysia is greatly affected by the Northeast Monsoon blowing down from the South China Sea from late November till early February, bringing high winds and heavy storms. So this will be a time to avoid island visiting, especially those along the east coast of peninsula Malaysia. Many of the resorts on the islands will be closed as well.
There is another monsoon, the Southwest, blowing from July to September but as the monsoon will hit the western shores of peninsular Malaysia first, the effect is less pronounced.
Favorite thing: The flag consists of a white crescent and a star of five points on a red field at the canton and navy blue at the fly. The white denotes a sovereign ruler, red a warrior and blue the universe.
