It is a country of unspoiled beauty, fascinating culture, isolated tropical islands, and home to one of the highest mountains in South East Asia, Mount Kinabalu (4,095m).

The Cultural
Sabah's population comprises over 30 different races and over 80 different dialects. The 3 main indigenous groups are the Kadazan/Dusun, Bajau and Murut. The Kadazans/Dusuns are found mainly on the West Coast and makes up about one third of the population. They are prosperous agricultural people and are the main rice producers of Sabah.


The Bajau are skilled fishermen though there are linguistic and cultural differences between those living on the west and east coast. Those living on the west coast are predominantly farmers and they are well known for their skilled horsemanship. Those living on the east coast are mainly sea nomads, coming ashore only to bury their dead.
The Murut live mostly in the South West region of Sabah and in remote parts of the interior residency between the town of Keningaru and the borders of Sarawak and Indonesia. They were great hunters who uses spears, blowpipes and poisoned darts.
