Situated right next to the Celebes Sea, Tawau is a great place to start a road trip along one of the most scenic drives in Malaysia’s Sabah province. Book your flight to Tawau with Royal Brunei Airlines and experience the culture, customs, and beauty of this seaside destination.
Culture in Tawau
Start your day by visiting the Tawau Tanjung Market and pick up some snacks. The indoor market is home to hundreds of vendors selling everything from dried fish to local crafts. Then, head to the cavernous Al-Kauthar Mosque and marvel at its massive dome. Later in the day, indulge your sweet tooth at the Teck Guan Cocoa Museum. Taste a variety of cocoa-based products, including chocolate jam and delicious sweet drinks.
Nature in Tawau
Grab your snorkel and flippers and make a short trip to the Roach Reefs, a man-made tropical reef ideal for diving. Back on land, enjoy a relaxing picnic at Tawau Hills National Park and, if you’re lucky, you might spot the elusive pygmy elephant for which the park is famous. For intrepid and experienced explorers, plan a trip to the pristine Maliau Basin Conservation Area, a journey of several hours outside of Tawau. Be sure to hire a guide, as this jungle zone is quite remote by design.
