Adventures in Sandakan, Borneo November 25 2015


We had a wonderful time in Sandakan, people and nature are amazing!

Sandakan is a city in the Malaysian state of Sabah, on the northeast coast of Borneo, Most people in Sandakan speak in the national language that is Malay which can be distinguished by the touch of Sabahan dialect. The Malay spoken here is different the one used in the western part of Malaysia. Sandakan's vocabulary is very much influenced by the Suluk words. Apart from that, Chinese people with Cantonese tongue are also to be found here.

Cute children came to us to say hello

The Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, One of only four orang-utan sanctuaries in the world, Sepilok is about 25km north of Sandakan. The centre was established in 1964; it now covers 40 sq km and has become one of Sabah’s top tourist attractions. Usually the Orang-utans are brought when they are either orphaned or injured

    Our first time we cut see a sun bear and so close to us.
