Tak Kenal Maka Tak Cinta Ep 12: Semporna

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. Last month, we did an overview of what Tawau, Sabah has to offer, but today we dive into stunning Semporna, nestled on the eastern coast of Borneo and not too far from  Tawau town. We explore the rich history and cultural heritage of this town, and also its breathtaking tapestry of biodiversity, from vibrant coral reefs to lush rainforests. Helping us on this adventure is Andrew Sebastian, the Founder & CEO of the Ecotourism and Conservation Society of Malaysia (ECOMY).
