Sandakan
Taking a trip to Sandakan remains one of the best ways to enjoy eco-friendly and culturally rewarding adventures in one of Borneo's largest cities.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Sun): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kun Yam (Goddess of Mercy) Temple, take an in-depth tour of Sandakan Memorial Park, and then test your team's savvy at Escape Sandakan. Here are some ideas for day two: learn more about the world around you at Sandakan Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC), identify plant and animal life at Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre (BSBCC), and then look for all kinds of wild species at Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary.

To find photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Sandakan online trip maker.

Kuala Lumpur to Sandakan is an approximately 6-hour flight. In September, daily temperatures in Sandakan can reach 38°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) so you can travel to Kota Kinabalu.

Kota Kinabalu

A holiday in Kota Kinabalu, the state capital and main gateway town, offers access to urban areas boasting a diverse and rapidly evolving set of malls, bars, and quality restaurants serving locally caught seafood.
Spend the 17th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: shake up your sightseeing with a climbing tour, step off the mainland to explore Manukan Island, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kota Kinabalu City Mosque.
