“Sabah has always been known for its unique wildlife, captivating natural beauty, beautiful coastlines and exotic culture. Expanding on these natural resources, Sabah Tourism aims to look into diversi cation to keep up with the current trends such as Wellness Tourism both in the medical realm and spiritual activities such as retreats. Visitors are looking for rustic, back to nature and serene locations, which Sabah promises.
For wildlife and nature seekers, new areas are being explored for visitors to see rare animals such as the Clouded Leopard, Bornean Pygmy Elephants and Orang Utans in the wild. These areas are mainly situated in the East Coast of Sabah between Tawau and Lahad Datu. The Borneo Rhino Sanctuary located at the Tabin Wildlife Reserve, now open to visitors, is an exciting new addition to check out. This strengthens the conservation efforts which are already in place such as the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre and the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre. New air accessibility via Kuala Lumpur with Condor Airlines which flies out of Frankfurt and Scoot from Berlin into Singapore enables keen travellers to reach Sabah”.
