SANDAKAN

 

Overview

Sandakan is the second-largest town in Sabah located in the northeastern coast of Borneo facing the Sulu Sea. Its former name is Elopura. It was the former capital of British North Borneo. Sandakan's development took place under the British North Borneo Company (BNBC) with Chinese from British Hong Kong immigrating and settling into Sandakan. It prospered into an active trading and commercial centre, all of which came to a halt with the Japanese occupation during World War II. The town was razed to the ground by the Allied bombing in an attempt to evade the Japanese invasion. After the war its control was shifted to the British Crown as BNBC was not capable of shouldering the expense of reconstruction. Upon reconstruction, the administrative capital was moved to Jesselton (Kota Kinabalu).

Sandakan is a port town and its economy is largely supported by export industry by the export of oil, coffee, sago, tobacco and timber. Fishing, ship building, eco-tourism and manufacturing are other economic contributors. The population is dominated by non-Malaysians, primarily Southern Filipinos, closely followed by Bumiputras.

Places of Attraction

A cruise down the Kinabatangan River through mangrove swamps and flood plains provides an opportunity to observe proboscis monkeys, wild elephants and local villages. Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary, Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre where rescued orangutans are re-adapted to jungle life, Gomantong Caves where swiftlet nests are harvested as a Chinese delicacy and Turtle Islands Park consisting of three islands, namely, Selingaan, Gulisaan and Bakkungan Kechil where visitors can see turtle conservation and egg laying are alternate ways of enjoying the wildlife of Sandakan. The Sandakan Cultural Festival held annually is perfect to experience Sabahan culture.

Sandakan Memorial Park dedicated to the fallen soldiers of World War II, Bull Sim Sim which is a lovely water village on stilts and cultural venues such as Sandakan Heritage Museum and Agnes Keith House and Museum, restored from the home of author Agnes Newton Keith are other sights worth visiting. For shopping head on to Sandakan Harbour with the Harbour Mall which is the primary business area.

Other important features of Sandakan include Sandakan District Mosque, Puu Jih Shih Temple, Sam Sing Kung Temple (oldest Sandakan building dating back to 1887), St. Michael's & All Angels Church and higher education campuses of University of Malaysia Sabah, Open University Malaysia and Universiti Putra Malaysia.

Accessibility and Transportation

Federal Route 22 links Sandakan to the west coast of Sabah. Pan Borneo Highway also links it to destinations such as Lahad Datu, Kunak and Tawau. Sandakan Airport links the town to other domestic destinations such as Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur. A ferry terminal connects Sandakan to Zamboanga and Mindanao of Philippines.
