It is located in the East Coast of Sabah and is famous for its wide range of seafood available. Back in the days, it was known as Sabah’s ‘Little Hong Kong’ due to the large amount of Chinese migrants from Hong Kong.
About Kinabatangan:
The Kinabatangan river, located in Sabah, is the second longest river in Malaysia at 560 km. It is known for its remarkable wildlife and fascinating habitats such as the limestone caves and mangrove swamps.
