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.
