Wondering if it’s worth visiting Sabah on your Malaysian adventure?
Sabah is one of the two big Malaysian states located on the island of Borneo, or East Malaysia, as it’s also known. It is home to so many amazing natural attractions. It really should be on any bucket list!
There is much more here than the famous Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre although you should definitely visit that! There are many more animals to look for including pygmy elephants, cloud leopards, sun bears, many types of monkeys, crocodiles, tarsiers and more.
A trip to Sabah really is a trip about natural attractions from the wildlife to the rainforest to the absolutely stunning islands off the coast to the amazing underwater environments.
But there are other things worth seeing and doing around here too. In this episode, I’m discussing why you should visit Sabah, how to get there, what to do once you’re there as well as how long to stay.
By the end of this episode, you’ll be all set for a visit to Sabah!
