Sabah Advisory
Friday, August 4, 2023


We feel the buzz of the excited tourists in town! Whether it is at breakfast for those making their way out to the island, or donned in hiking attire for their trip up to Mount Kinabalu and not to forget golfers! You can just tell the nature of activity by their choice of wardrobe.

Over in the east coast, the days start early too as wildlife enthusiasts start their bird watching activities at dawn as well as the morning river cruise along the Kinabatangan River and divers over in Semporna head out for their first dive for the day.

Speaking of getting dressed up for the day, as we have seen hotter days, we would like to remind you to always keep hydrated and wear lighter clothing while still remembering to keep modesty especially when visiting places of worship to capture iconic photo memories.

Towards this second half of the year, we are glad to host various events:

  • Sandakan Day Memorial, 15 August
  • ADEX Sabah Ocean Partnership Summit, 18 – 20 August
  • Asian Bird Festival, 13 – 17 October
  • Borneo Bird Festival, 21 – 22 October
  • Tanjung Aru Beach Festival, 28 – 29 October
  • X Multisport Challenge KK City, 10 – 12 November

We hope you journey with us as we continue to showcase our amazing Sabah that offers you the best from mountain high to ocean deep. So do follow us on our social media and website for updates and inspirations.

We advise all visitors to engage services from licensed agents. The list of agents and accommodation providers can be referred to from MOTAC or MATTA.

We look forward to welcome you to Sabah, North Borneo.
