Keningau is both a district and town within the Interior Division of Sabah in Malaysia. As the fifth largest town in Sabah and one of the oldest, the area is steeped in culture and tradition while also having modern urbanization present. The massive temple in the middle of town is a major point of interest, while the tamu, or market, is truly massive. Let’s see what else Keningau has waiting.
The town of Keningau is a great base of operations for your exploration of the immediate and surrounding area. The atmosphere in this town carries a calm, tranquil nature yet once you head to the market, the pace picks up considerably. There are many sights and attractions near to Keningau ranging from sport to outdoor adventures.
Look towards the busy town centre of Keningau for good quality but basic accommodation. Due to being central to trade areas, the market and the temple, this is a great place to shop. With an ATM nearby, public transport readily available and a few shops and restaurants near, central Keningau is your best option. There are even low-budget rooms at fantastic prices however most opt for the well-priced mid-range hotels.
One of the best ways to stay in Keningau is by booking one of the tours which take you to the interior. Within the forests surrounding Keningau are some of the most elegant traditional log homes which are serviced by the guides and their friends & family. The hospitality is known to be amazing, with the locals making you truly feel like a part of their extended family. Consider a guided trip through the ancient rainforest to be rewarded with solitude, serenity and amazing traditional cuisine.
The first landmark which you won’t be able to miss is the Keningau Oath Stone. This was erected in commemoration of Sabah’s entrance into the Malaysian federation. Situated near the Keningau District Office, you can’t leave without a photo of this monument and its plaque states its promise of loyalty to the people.
There is a sport complex in Keningau which supplies facilities for basketball, tennis, volleyball, badminton, football and hockey. The area is also home to the Keningau Football Stadium and it has a swimming pool. For those who wish to participate in some friendly competition with the locals, don’t give this a miss.
There are numerous tours around the Sapalut River which offer scenic beauty which far exceeds that of more expensive areas such as the Maliau Basin. Tours offer boating, climbing and hiking through some of nature’s most unspoilt areas. The opportunity to stay over in the interior of Sabah is unforgettable. From Pungiton Cave to climbing Batu Punggul, you will find countless activities keeping you enthralled throughout your journey.
Fish Meehon is a local specialty which will have you coming back for more. This salty fish dish is made from a whole fish, plums, black pepper, ginger and at times pickled radish and tamarind. It is quite rich and leaves a lingering flavour. Each cook improves the recipe with their own unique additions. Don’t miss out on this delicacy.
A highlight for many is the traditional rice wine served in this area. It is known to be delicious but dangerous. Don’t leave without giving it a try, but try not to overdo it.
