Safari in Sandakan
Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary
(4)
I put safari because it is the only category I found that was similar, but obviously only a photo safari. I was at Sepilok in 2006, on my first visit to Borneo, and I fell for these animals which are so similar to humans in many ways. Sepilok is a rehab center where orangutans who have lost their habitat , or were used as pets can recover. The center has a large area of ​​primary forest, and once orangutans are released into it, for gradual reintroduction. They are fed twice a day, at 10:00am and 3:00pm. There's a wooden platform where tourists can take photos. During my visit, a mother and her baby were the only orangutans that came to eat, but the photo was so tender that I didn't mind.

Agnes Newton Keith house (Sandakan)

It's one of the places where you have to read the book to feel the magic. It's a hauntingly peaceful place. For the acute soul, you can feel a presence whenever you are inside one of the rooms. Looks like they never left the house. How could you when it's a beautiful place on top of the hill overlooking the city and the sea, with greenery all around.
Churches in Sandakan
Iglesia St. Michael

The oldest surviving European church to have ever graced Borneo. Despite its small size, it's the kind of church that somehow gives you a sense of communal safety.
