Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta Ep 11: Tawau

Tawau is the third largest town in Sabah, located on the East coast of the state, that shares a border with North Kalimantan. The area is an eco-tourist's dream, with attractions such as the Tawau Hills National Park, the Ulu Kalumpang Forest Reserve, and also the Maliau Basin Conservation Area and Danum Valley Conservation Area not too far away, offering undisturbed nature and eco adventures. Rainforests aside, there are beautiful, breathtaking unspoiled islands like Kapalai, Sipadan, Mataking, Mabul, Sibuan offering snorkelling and diving adventures galore. We explore what Tawau and its surrounding areas have to offer with Andrew Sebastian, the Founder & CEO, Ecotourism and Conservation Society of Malaysia. Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta is our ongoing tourism-themed series on Earth Matters, which aims to highlight lesser-known ecotourism spots right here in Malaysia. Done in collaboration with the Ecotourism & Conservation Society Malaysia (ECOMY), we want to take you back to the great outdoors, and experience the many off-the-beaten-track nature spots our country has to offer.
