Land Below the Wind

One of two Malaysian states on the island of Borneo, Sabah sits as the easternmost state in the country. The state's many natural attractions, nature reserves, and national parks, are home to an overwhelming range of animal and plant life, including the famed proboscis monkey. Off the coast, dive spots beckon many tourists, who come to explore the rich marine environment in protected areas. Historically a very culturally diverse part of the country, the towns and villages offer heritage museums, vibrant architecture, and cuisine that takes inspiration from the wider region. Plan how to spend your time in Sabah and other destinations in Malaysia using our Malaysia itinerary planner.
