Shangri-La's Orangutan Care Project

Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa launched a nature care project to raise awareness for endangered species and faunas endemic to Sabah and facilitate rehabilitation programmes aiming at returning these species back into the wild. The young orang-utans are definitely the stars of the show but there is a sheer number of fascinating animals to look at and the staff will explain in detail the process of rehabilitation. Do not forget to wear sturdy footwear and prepare for mosquitos.

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.
