Bintangor is a riverine town along Rejang River between Sarikei and Sibu. Its wharf is not big because express boats in transit horned for passengers and then they moved on. The downtown can be explored on foot. The shophouses are pretty new compared to Sarikei's classic type of shophouses due to its former fires
A clock tower watches (pun intended) over the town's denizens. The old cinema has been sadly replaced by a new building. The hawker centre is reputed to have a good rojak (fruit & vegetable salad in prawn sauce garnished with crunched peanut) stall. Try the Bintangor orange juice too. In the 1970s, Bintangor oranges cost 20 sen per kati.
In the evening, head out to the nice park for a romantic stroll or a cheap al fresco haircut by the soccer field (kunting rambut di rumput!).
When Sally met Harry, sorry, I mean when Bintangor met Sarikei, Bintangor cooed, "Show me your pineapple and I will show you my orange." The Bintangor orange icon by the river esplanade is big enough to turn any other orange green with envy. The real thing is sweet & sour and has come to symbolise Bintangor. Vitamin C, anyone?
