About Sabah

No place on Earth compares to the stunning natural beauty of Sabah. Covered in untouched green forests, unique Borneo wildlife, and gorgeous marine habitats, the north-eastern Malaysian province of Sabah is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Whether tourists spend time exploring the laid-back atmosphere of Kota Kinabalu, or dive the islands of Labuan, a holiday in Sabah will not be forgotten.

Don’t Miss

Sabah is full of amazing sites worth checking out. Tourists will need at least a week to uncover them all.

National parks of Sabah are the ideal spots to retreat back to nature. Mount Kinabalu, which stands over the capital of Sabah, offers pristine mountain hikes and unspoilt views. Another majestic spot to enjoy the beauty of Sabah’s rainforested landscape is the Danum Valley, particularly near Lahad Datu.

Just a short distance off the coast of Kota Kinabalu is the majestic Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park. This is arguably the best spot in Borneo for magnificent diving and snorkelling. There are dozens of other gorgeous sites for underwater explorations, including the east coast’s Sipadan island chain, where sharks, turtles and manta rays greet divers.

Wildlife viewing is a must in Sabah. In places like Sukau and Kinabatangan, proboscis monkeys are in abundance, living in their natural environment. Though not a natural area, Sepilok is home to injured and orphaned orangutans and is a real treat for nature-lovers. Don’t forget about the Crocker Range, which is home to the glorious Rafflesia flowers - the largest floral species in the world.

Restaurants and Bars

Dining is one of the biggest attractions in Sabah. The region has a vast array of cuisines, ranging from Indian to ethnic Malay, to Chinese and even Western. The larger cities and towns, like Kota Kinabalu and Tawau, offer the largest choice when it comes to cuisine. Along the coast, fresh seafood is always popular. Beef noodle is another local favourite, and traditional Kadazan cuisine, which is mostly found in the western and interior region of the province, is a recommended treat for tourists too.

Shopping in Sabah

Though Kota Kinabalu has a few modern malls, shopping in Sabah is mostly experienced through markets and bazaars, which are known as tamu. Handicrafts such as pearl products, weavings and carvings are popular as souvenir items. The tamu are also a great place to enjoy mixing with the locals. The largest and most famous market in the region is Kota Kinabalu’s Handicraft Market, located next to the waterfront.
