Get around[edit]

  • Taxis - taxis are available near the wharf terminals and the bus terminal, as well as in the central taxi station at the first intersection of Jalan Repok.

See[edit][add listing]

  • Sebangkoi Country Resort - this is a popular place to visit for the local populace. What was once a simple waterfall has now emerged as a multimillion dollar development with landscaped gardens and accommodation.
  • Sarikei Wharf Esplanade - this is ideal for evening strolls and sunset watching. The sun sets in the west and that's the direction of the Rejang River's flow towards the river mouth at the South China Sea where it deposits its silt.
  • Sarikei Lake Park
  • Sarikei Merdeka Park - this is one of the latest additions to the local government's effort to turn Sarikei into a more aesthetic town. Built in 2004, it consists of a central courtyard framed by two gazebos and Zen balls. The park was built on what used to be the Pasar Tamu of the town.

Markets[edit]

  • Sarikei Rejang Market located at Bank Road facing Rejang River's Terminal 1

Shopping Centres[edit]

There are 2-3 major shopping centres in Sarikei, namely Ngiu Kee, Everise, Everwin and Nam Leong. If you're looking for a good branded one,then Nam Leong or Ngiu Kee maybe the right place though it was still far from 'shopping perfections'. In a short words, 'till this 2011, people may notice that Sarikei still doesn't have any good shopping mall due to its low population. Sarikei's residents preferred shopping in Sibu(the nearest city with multiple 'Good Shopping Mall')

Eat[edit][add listing]

Interesting places to eat in Sarikei include the two coffeeshops in the Nyelong Industrial Estate, which serve nice Kam Pua noodles as well as Prawn Noodles. Aik Seng coffeeshop serves a mean Roti Kahwin, Nasi Lemak and an interesting version of Kam Pua noodles (the only "halal" kampua in town). Taman Selera at Kampung Seberang is one of the hottest spot at night serving different types of food.

A Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) and a local fast food franchise called Sugar Bun serves the occasional craving for fast food for the local populace. Never miss Sugar Bun if you pass by Sarikei.

Chicken King (opposite Guardian) is another addition to sarikei's Western Fast Food chains.
