Tebedu (also known as Tibade) is a border town in the Serian division of southwestern Sarawak, Malaysia,[1][2] on the Indonesia-Malaysia border. It lies approximately 63.2 kilometres (39 mi) south of the state capital Kuching.

Tebedu is on the main land crossing between Malaysia and Indonesia. It is located along the main road linking Kuching, Sarawak and Pontianak, West Kalimantan. The town on the Indonesian side of the border is Entikong. In 2010, Matrade Sarawak director Omar Mohd Salleh stated that over 90% of Sarawak’s export trade passed through Sungai Tujoh (on the border with Brunei) or through Tebedu.[3]

Most of the town’s inhabitants are indigenous people of the Bidayuh tribe.
