Sandakan, Malaysia

Photo of Sandakan, Malaysia

While Kota Kinabalu was bombed twice during WW2, Sandakan was the location of a famous prisoner of war camp, and where the infamous Death Marches began. While Kota Kinabalu has the scenery, Sandakan has the wildlife, most fascinatingly the Orang utans at Sepilok and the turtles of Turtle Island Park.
