About this book

This 83-page book, with dozens of full-colour photographs as well as interesting archival photographs, looks at the history, culture and rich wildlife in the Sandakan region, in the northeast coast of the state.

The second in the Sabah Colour Guide series, the Sandakan guide reveals interesting information on the fascinating history of the town, which was capital of British North Borneo until 1946. It also looks at the culture of its different peoples, and the many attractions in and around Sandakan, including Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary and the resort island of Langkayan, near the Turtle Islands.

Useful maps of the Sandakan district, as well as detailed street maps of the town, make it easy to discover this interesting region. There is a wealth of practical information on various places of interest, recommendations on accommodation, a restaurant guide and a listing of tour operators specialising in the area.
