TOURISM is a major contributor to Sabah’s economy. At present, almost 100 international direct flights connect Sabah with major destinations, such as Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Taipei, Brunei, Singapore, Jakarta and Manila.

Last year, Sabah welcomed more than 3.3 million tourists, with receipts of RM3.069 billion from international travellers and RM3.615 billion from locals.
