Itinerary

Departure: 0830 hours daily (Lunch Included)

Morning, depart from your hotel in Sandakan or meet at Sandakan Airport. Drive to the world-renowned Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre to witness the feeding of the iconic Orang Utan and a good opportunity to photograph them in their natural habitat. The centre was established in 1964 to help rehabilitate the Orang Utans which had been orphaned, or displaced by logging and clearing of secondary forests for plantation. The magnificent mixed dipterocarp forest offers a natural home to the Orang Utans, which slowly become less dependent on their twice-daily feeding of milk and bananas at the centre and eventually return voluntarily to the wild.

Proceed to the Australian War Memorial Park, where the infamous Sandakan-Ranau Death Marches commenced in 1945. The park is dedicated to some 2700 Australian and British prisoners of war (POWs) and others who lost their lives at the Sandakan POW camp and death marches in North Borneo during the WWII. Within the attractively landscaped Park, there is a Commemorative Pavilion, the Memorial Cairns and the Sandakan Memorial. Lunch will be served at local restaurant.

Visit to the Puu Jih Shih Buddhist Temple that offers a spectacular view of Sandakan Bay. Visit to the famed Agnes Keith’s House that has been restored to its former glory and is now a museum. Learn about life in the colonial days on Agnes & Harry Keith who was the first conservator of the Forestry Department in Sabah who had been instrumental in the formation of Sepilok Orang Utan Centre. Agnes Keith has written many books on early life in Sabah during her stay in this house before the war. Her books had since become part of Sabah’s history. Visit the Central Market where you can see the local produce and fresh seafood are sold. Drive to Sim Sim Water Village where houses are built on stilt above the water while observing the fascinating view of the sea. Drop off at Sandakan Airport or at your respective hotel. 

Note: Do not wear bright color clothing such as red or yellow. Keep your belonging safe in your bag and avoid wearing jewellery especially dangling one. No food is allowed in the reserve.
