Sandakan

Also known as the Nature city, some of the richest wildlife areas found anywhere in Southeast Asia await the visitor to Sandakan. Meet the iconic Orang Utan, see the world’s smallest elephant, watch the antics of the unique proboscis monkey, visit caves where delicacies fit for the Emperors of China is still gathered and be astonished by the birdlife of Malaysia’s greatest floodplain. Sandakan has direct flights from the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur as well as from Kota Kinabalu.

Just outside the city, find the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre The mixed dipterocarp forest offers a natural home to the orangutans, which slowly become less dependent on their twice-daily feeding of milk and bananas at the centre and eventually return voluntarily to the wild.

Visitors to Sepilok can witness the feeding sessions at 10am and 3 pm from a platform and viewing gallery reached via a boardwalk through the lush forest, and later learn even more in the information centre.
