day trip in Sandakan

Hello everyone,

I plan to go to Sandakan next month. I will arrive from Kota Kinabalu by Airasia flight appx at 7.50 am and stay overnight.

Would you help me to recommend what should I visit (orang utan sac, that is a must) during this stay please?

thank you

You could visit Sepilok (orangs) for the morning feed and then head to Labuk bay to see the probiscus monkeys after. That'll take most of a day. Day 2 you could explore Agnus Keith house and the tea gardens next door, the war memorial, the 'new' Buddhist temple on top of the hill with great views, other old churches/temples (we found the really 'old' buddhist/tao temple very interesting), wonder around town - have lunch on the waterfront at a local cafe. Depends on how much time you have and your interests I guess...

Hi Carol790606,

You could join a day trip which covers the places KGB mentioned,they will also take you to Labuk Bay where you can get up closed with proboscis monkeys. Airport pick up is included,tour normally ends around 8pm where they will drop you off at your hotel in Sandakan.
