Trip Planner: Asia / Malaysia / Sabah / Sandakan Division / Sandakan / Sandakan Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC)
Visit a center of environmental education at Sandakan Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC). Starting off as an environmental school, the center opened its doors to the public in 2007, maintaining its focus on conservation and education while broadening its appeal to younger and amateur visitors. Enjoy a stroll through the plant identification garden to learn about the vegetation that thrives in the surrounding nature reserve. Take a trip up to the 25 m (82) ft high canopy walkway to gain a new perspective on an area of thick rainforest--great for photographs and bird-spotting, and secure enough for kindergarten-age children. Our Sandakan trip planning website makes visiting Sandakan Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC) and other Sandakan attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Incredible patch of rainforest that extends well beyond the walking trails. The layout of botanical garden is a bit tired and dated but the canopy walk is world class. Evenings come alive with the giant flying squirrels... just wait long enough in the canopy for the cool change, watch the nest boxes and they are suddenly there. Look out for two venerable giant trees, a bit of a walk but awesome.
Arrived here first thing when it opened at 8am and it was quiet and peaceful and I had the whole forest to myself. The canopy walk is amazing and a great place to watch the birds and listen to the sounds of the jungle. Strolling back on the ground was equally nice and total different experience. I highly recommend just talking a walk on the property and enjoy!
