Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia - - CONTRIBUTORS - PHO­TOG­RA­PHER “Shift­ing San­dakan”

“So many Chi­nese moved to San­dakan to do busi­ness that lo­cals call it ‘Lit­tle Hong

Kong.’ It was from here that the Brits ex­ported oil, to­bacco, tim­ber, cof­fee and sago back to Europe and the rest of the em­pire. We had vis­ited sev­eral times, but this trip was for the first San­dakan Food Fes­ti­val. Go now to have a taste of retro Malaysia and see the build­ings from the 1970s, and the pre­war wooden houses that are in­cred­i­bly well con­served, and many still in­hab­ited by the orig­i­nal fam­i­lies. Kam­pung Ikat is a lo­cal vil­lage fa­mous for its dried fish—which I al­ways bring home, as my par­ents love it.” In­sta­gram: @kitchan_­trav­elpho­tos.
