Designed to delight nature lovers, this day tour allows you to observe orangutans in their natural habitat at the Sandakan Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. Under the guidance of sanctuary staff, observe orphaned orangutans and long-tailed macaques being fed and follow a nature trail through the tropical rain forest. Eat a typical Malay lunch at a nearby restaurant and then embark on a city tour of Sandakan, one of Sabah’s earliest settlements home to haunting cemeteries, Chinese temples, and colonial mansions. Hotel or airport pickup and drop-off are included.

This village consist of several stilt houses built over water. It shows a different way of life. The village is divided into many alleys with numbers and houses are also numbered. If you walk through all alleys you will note the difference in the state of houses as well as the cleanlines. Some houses are very beautiful, others are quite debilitated. It is a must see if you haven't seen this types of water villages.

We walked through the village at low tide and you can see trash everywhere. It’s quite fascinating to see how the people live and our guide explained the history of the village: the people built homes here because obviously they did not have to buy land. We ate in a restaurant here, which made me a little squeamish but it was ok. I do not eat seafood but I imagine that if you do you will enjoy it more.

On our way to our Jungle Lodge we had to pick our boat up from the jetty at the end of the village. The narrow walkway with houses on either side gave us an insight as to how the villagers lived. Much has been made in other reviews of the rubbish floating in the water. Our guide explained that at last something was being down to clean up the are a and educate the villagers to be more respectfully of the environment, hopefully it will continue to improve.

This was an interesting lifestyle experience that will probably disappear at some stage in the future. The houses are large and vary in quality and we had the opportunity to wander through one. Its a unique experience even down to the rooster pen for the illegal cock fighting. Not sure why some of the occupants dump their rubbish in the bay. We spotted a rooster in the sea, obviously it had lost its bout the previous evening !!! We were also informed that houses further along the coast were being eliminated for a redevelopment project and that at some stage the bay had been suitable for swimming. Worth a visit.

I was told that here, we can get fresh seafood noodle and other stuff so I decided to be here as early as 7am. Simply tuck into a small jetty house and offered Mee Kicap without soup. It was a breath taking moment when the noodle came with plenty of seafood such as scallop, fish slice squid, prawn and fish cake thus barely cost RM6.50. Must try this in early morning folks
