Of all Malaysia’s rich tapestry, Sabah perhaps epitomises the country’s most attractive qualities best
FOR ALL OF Kuala Lumpur’s urban modernity, and Penang’s cultural prevalence, Sabah represents ‘team nature’ and for that alone, it will forever remain one of the nation’s foremost hotspots.
The State has recognised this appeal too. Every strategic investment, infrastructural development and tourism-driven improvement is made with a view to capitalise on the natural delights that grace the likes of Borneo, Kinabalu, Sepilok and Tawau.
As a result, Sabah is now one of the world’s leading areas for wildlife conservation on the nature side, and for island diving from a more adventurous perspective. These two elements are reason enough to explore the region once business has been concluded. And it’s only going to get better in the years to come.
The Sabah Tourism Board continues to work tirelessly to diversify
Sabah’s offering, without diluting the authenticity and organic traits that are already so popular. Rather, it is focusing on enhancing people’s stay once there - addressing areas of hospitality as evidenced by Hyatt Regency Kinabalu and Ming Garden Hotel & Residences; and accessibility as epitomised by the 19 different domestic and international routes that connect to Sabah.
Areas of nightlife and the food & drink scene are also being developed to attract a younger demographic of visitors, and in the years to come it will come as no surprise to see Sabah every bit as popular as its neighbouring counterparts.
