About

Sandakan is a city that is located on the eastern seaboard of Sabah, a city that is filled with a rich history. Formally known as Elopura, Sandakan is the second-largest town in Sabah after Kota Kinabalu City. The city was founded by a Scottish arms smuggler from Glasgow, named William Clark Cowie who built the first European settlement and named it Sandakan which means ‘The place that was pawned’ in the Suluk language. Shortly after that, a new settlement was built there by Germans, changing the name to Elopura which means ‘Beautiful Town”. Several years down the road, the settlement was again renamed Sandakan.

Sandakan is the perfect embodiment of Sabah’s rich and diverse biodiversity, with a mixture of people, lifestyle, cultures and faith. Visitors who steps into Sandakan would surely leave the place in awe as it is a microcosm of the modern day Sabah. With forests reserves rich with wildlife beauty and the beautiful beaches where you can see rare, marine turtle, Sandakan provides visitors with the best of both worlds.

Hotel Hsiang Garden
Staff are friendly, but they said my payment didn't go through although I just paid through this app online. I got all the receipts of payment with me as proof. In the end they let me to check in thank God. What's upset me, its already past midnight (just arrived from kk driving) during my check in they just told me that the elevator is not functioning and our room is at level 4, also the there's problem with the water. Since its already late, my whole family decided just to stay here for the night because of tiredness from a long drive.

Livingston Hotel
A nice and smooth experience with the hotel. Been here twice already and everything was fine. Just that they aren't any shops within close proximity so you have to walk quite a bit to the nearest town area. Also it would be better if they can provide pool towels for patrons since it was quite a hassle to bring your own towels from the room.
