For me, this is the best place in Labuan. Very well maintained. Take your time to read the inscriptions on the individual grave. It is so humbling and touching. Will definitely come to Labuan again just for this.

The War Graves are worth visiting, especially if you have any interest in history or in WW2. This cemetery/ memorial to soldiers who died in WW2 is well maintained and peaceful.

This place is a must visit and has that historical value and essence. Its well kept on the inside but outside the entrance is quote dirty. We do hope the local authorities will look into this matter.
