The Malaysian state of Sabah lies in north of the island of Borneo and borders with Indonesia on the south. It is relatively less developed than other Malaysian states and from a tourist perspective offers natural scenery, beautiful islands, wildlife sanctuaries and national parks. At 4100m Mt Kinabalu is the highest peak between the Himalayas and Papua New Guinea. The Labuk bay, Sepilok, Kinabatangan river, Danum valley and Tabin wildlife sanctuaries have interesting wildlife. To the east of Semporna lie several islands with pristine beaches and an interesting underwater environment, of which Sipadan is the most famous. The cities of Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Lahad Datu, Semporna and Tawau act as gateways to the nearby attractions.
