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.
