Sandakan

3.6
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. A gateway town to some of the densest forests on the island, Sandakan provides a home for conservation projects protecting orangutans, proboscis monkeys, and sun bears. The town also boasts significant architectural landmarks dating back to the colonial era, and impressive places of worship providing a glimpse into the island's beliefs and traditions. The site of tragic events during World War II, Sandakan features memorials and museums detailing that devastating chapter in the island's history. Our Malaysia day trip planning app allows you to plan your trip to Sandakan and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
