Be­yond San­dakan

Sunday Herald Sun - Escape - - 1225 1220 -

An­other es­sen­tial stop for all Aus­tralians is the me­mo­rial on the out­skirts of San­dakan to 2434 prisoners of war (mostly Aus­tralians) who per­ished here in what has be­come known as the ‘‘ Death March’’.

While some vis­i­tors fly into San­dakan from Kota Kin­a­balu for the day, se­ri­ous na­ture-lov­ing trav­ellers will in­clude it in their four to five-day visit to Sabah’s north­east. San­dakan’s nat­u­ral at­trac­tions merely whet one’s ap­petite for more and it was easy to see why many trav­ellers head fur­ther afield to the Kin­abatan­gan River, Go­man­tong Caves and off­shore to Turtle Is­land, to ad­mire the nat­u­ral as­sets that this part of Sabah has to of­fer.
