Sabah Art Gallery

The building of the Sabah Art Gallery itself is a piece of art. Its internal structure is similar to the Guggenheim in New York and resembles bahuyun, a traditional basket which used to be woven out of bamboo. The interior is quite and peaceful and hosts an eclectic mix of local artist and student work from the Sabah region.

Do & See

The centre of town is based around the waterfront area, which is home to a charming mix of old and new – trendy bars, restaurants and hotels line the area, but are contrastingly interspersed with traditional markets, fishing ports and hawker stalls, a great blend.
