Sandakan, Malaysia

Sandakan, Malaysia

Located on the northeastern coast of Borneo in East Malaysia, the city of Sandakan was nearly destroyed during the World War II, but today, it’s home to numerous historic, cultural and ecological sights. The Sandakan War Memorial Park commemorates the death of Australian and British prisoners held at the Taman Rimba prisoner-of-war camp, while St. Michael’s & All Angels Church, built in 1897, is one of the few surviving pre-war buildings. Perched on the hilltop above nearby Tanah Merah, the Puu Jih Shih Buddhist Temple provides a commanding view of the town and harbor below, as does Sam Sing Kung Temple, the oldest building in the city. For a truly authentic experience, make your way to Kampung Buli Sim Sim, a water village on stilts, and enjoy fresh seafood at a floating restaurant, or take a day trip to such ecotourism destinations as the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, and the Kinabatangan River.
