Striking a balance between financial hub and tourist attraction, Labuan Island offers much of the appeal of Penang without the hordes of tourists.
On the 8th (Wed), admire the landmark architecture of Labuan Clock Tower and then explore the different monuments and memorials at World War II Memorial. On the 9th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: stroll the grounds of Labuan War Cemetery, don't miss a visit to Labuan Square (Dataran Labuan), and then play a few rounds at Labuan International Golf Club.

Plan my trip to Labuan Island with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Kuala Lumpur to Labuan Island is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. In April, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Thu) so you can travel to Kota Kinabalu.
