This is a garden erected to remember one of the founders of Sibu, Wong Nai Siong. A Western educated and a Christian convert, Wong brought some 1,000 over Foochow-speaking immigrants from his village in Fuzhou, China to Sibu between 1900-1902. Today, Sibu is perhaps the only place in Malaysia where one can find a Church at every nook and corner.... More

Our sponsor found his family name of the wall. It has a deep meaning to those from Sibu as these family members migrated from China after persecution. I felt as if I was on holy ground.

If you are not from Sibu and you are not a Foochow nor a Mandarin language reading person, this "memorial garden" would mean nothing to you in the absence of a guide. Set up in 2000 or 2002, the objectives were actually interesting. However the lack of explanation on site makes it meaningless to visit if you don't have a... More

Initially, I thought this was a sort of indoor memorial garden but was surprised it was an outdoor open air sort of garden. It was properly maintained and clean, apparently there was a great respect for this old man that the place was not vandalized. It was right in the middle of the Sungai Merah town beside the Sungai Merah... More

This garden along Sungai Merah is build to memorize our ancestor, Wong Nai Siong who brought our great grandparent or grandparent from China to settle down in Sibu. Sungai Merah was the place where they alighted. There are 2 parts for this garden which separated by the road. This garden is not that fantastic as some of the items is... More

It is a historical site where the Foochow Immigrants landed on 1901. The garden is built right on the site, with the name Wong Nai Siong was given to commemorate the leader of the group, Rev. Wong Nai Siong. The garden is not big, nor magnificient. However, the landscape is nice, beside the Red River (Sungai Merah). The town surrounding... More
