Sabah

Sabah is often referred to as ‘The Land Below the Wind’, a phrase used by seafarers in the past to describe lands south of the typhoon belt. It is located at the northern portion of the island of Borneo. It is the second largest state in Malaysia, after Sarawak. This state borders Sarawak and Brunei to the southwest; and the province of North Kalimantan of Indonesia to the south. There are also several islands off its coast. Sabah’s capital is Kota Kinabalu.

This state is home to Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in Malay Archipelago; and Kinabatangan River, the second longest river in Malaysia. Tourism is a major industry in Sabah with famous tourist destinations such as Kinabalu Park, Turtle Islands Park, Pulau Sipadan and Pulau Layang-Layang. Other economic sectors contributing to the state’s income include agriculture and manufacturing.

Rapid development in Sabah has attracted many property developers.  These property projects are mainly concentrated in the town areas. Commercial properties include shop-office lots, office blocks, retail space, industrial lots and land. Residential properties are terraced houses, semi-detached houses, bungalows, flat, apartments and condominiums.

Residents and visitors of Sabah will generally experience hot and humid tropical climate throughout the year. Average temperatures can range from a low of 21°C in the highlands to a high of 32°C in the low-lands. The wet season in Sabah is from October to February.

The population of Sabah consists of a diverse mix of ethnic groups. They are the Kadazan-Dusun, Bajau, Brunei Malay, Murut and other indigenous people. These ethnic groups make up the colourful cultural canvas of Sabah. This state is famous for its longhouses. Traditional dances include sumazau, magunatip, nona mansaya and daling-daling. The most popular festival in Sabah is Pesta Kaamatan, the harvest festival of the Kadazan-Dusuns. Traditional local food includes bambangan, pinasakan, ambuyat and nonsom.
