Sabah, situated at the northern part of Borneo, caressed by the South China Sea on its west, Sulu and Celebes seas on its eastern coastline, seems almost unfairly blessed with nature’s beauty. With its timeless rainforest and captivating ancient caves, alluring beaches and idyllic islands, it encapsulates the very best of the third largest island in the world. Sabah is well known as “THE LAND BELOW THE WIND”, because it is located just south of the typhoon-prone region, making it free from typhoons.

Pint-sized Sabah occupies a relatively small chunk of the world’s third largest island, yet what a colourful punch it packs: the treasure of turquoise-fringed desert islands with coral reefs swarming with marine biodiversity; trekkers’ paradise Mt Kinabalu reaching 4095m into the clouds; and jungles pulsing with a menagerie of bug-eyed tarsiers, gibbons, pythons, clouded leopards and huge crocs.

The mountainous terrain of Sabah ranges from long white sandy beaches to coastal mangroves, from rivers to fertile plains, from limestone caves to ranges covered with rainforest, all this culminating in the majestic granite massif of Mount Kinabalu, top 5 highest mountains in Southeast Asia. Not forgetting Sabah’s extensive coastline populated with coral reefs and teaming with marine life, treasured marine heritage islands glittered with crystal-clear waters, all of which present Sabah as picturesque scenery, destined to fulfill the dream of a tropical island paradise!

Given its compact size, getting from one of Sabah’s highlights to the next is eminently doable, plus as a former British colony, English is commonly spoken here, making it extremely traveller friendly. Whether it’s pearl hunting in Kota Kinabalu, watching baby orangutans learning to climb at Sepilok, beach flopping on the northern Tip of Borneo, or diving or trekking, your time here will feel like five holidays condensed into one.
