Sabah is one of the 13 states and 3 federal territories which make up Malaysia. Known as the "Land Below The Wind", Sabah lies on the northern part of the island of Borneo. Sabah has lush tropical rainforests, beautiful islands & beaches and an idyllic lifestyle. The capital of Sabah is Kota Kinabalu which is the gateway to eco-tourism adventures like mountain climbing, caving, river cruising, white-water rafting and diving. Mount Kinabalu at 4095 meters is reputedly the highest mountain in South East Asia. Its main attraction is the Kinabalu Park with its rich diversity of flora, fauna and an amazing array of birds.

Other famous tourist attractions in Sabah include Sipadan Island which lies off the town of Semporna in the East. Sipadan which is famous for its teeming marine life has been named as one of the 5 most beautiful diving spots in the world by renowned oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. In the town of Sandakan to the North is the well known Agnes Keith House. This former British colonial government quarters was once occupied by famous American author Agnes Newton Keith who wrote Land Below The Wind (1939), Three Came Home (1946) and White Man Returns (1951). Nearby Sandakan is the Sepilok orang utan sanctuary where orang utans are raised before they are released back into the wild. Tourists can also take a river cruise along the Kinabatangan River to witness the proboscis monkeys and other wildlife.
