About Sabah (Negeri di Bawah Bayu)

One of The Best Island in Malaysia

Sabah is well known as “THE LAND BELOW THE WIND,” because it is situated just south of the typhoon-prone region, liberating it from typhoons. Home to 32 different tribal groups comprising of over 30 ethnic races, Sabah is often identified as the people who make Sabah so unique to visit. Sabah, is in the northern part of Borneo, and on its west by the South China Sea, the Coasts of Sulu and Celebes on its east coastline. It encapsulates the absolute best of the world’s third largest island with its everlasting rainforest and captivating ancient caves, alluring beaches and idyllic islands.
