Sabah ensures that you have plenty of things left to do even after having visited the major tourist attractions. Activities such as paragliding (Lohan Hill and Kokol), camping (Lohan Hill and Tunku Abdel Rahman Island Park), snorkeling (Sipadan, Layang Layang and Mabul), white-water rafting (alongside Kiulu and Padas rivers) and venturing into the jungles from camps located around the Batu Punggul area and Kinabatangan River are just some of the several things you can enjoy. North Borneo Steam Railway, which operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and the Sabah Jungle Railway, which operates daily, offer some other great things families can enjoy together.
The flavorful cuisine of Sabah packs in the mixed influence of Malay, Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Thai, Indonesian and other Asian cuisines. The street food has Western influences as well, making Sabah a great place to eat for tourists from around the world. Food is in fact, a major attraction in Sabah and must not be ignored.
The most popular destination is Mount Kinabalu, which is often the primary reason why tourists visit Sabah. The state has several natural attractions to offer, which include the Kinabalu National Park (a world heritage site), Sipadan National Park, Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, Poring Hot Springs and the Danum Valley.
