Places To Visit

Labuan Bird Park

This bird park covers a 6 hectare site at the north of the island and includes a number of geodesic domes in which the birds have some space to fly around. Since it looked a little tired and I did not have much time I did not go inside. It has mixed reviews but if you like bird parks, this is one of the cheapest in Malaysia. Adult RM3 (foreigners RM5). The 6.9 hectares big Labuan Bird Park acts as a home to all kinds of Borneo birds where you can hardly see it around anywhere except in the deep forests of Borneo.


Pancur Hitam Beach

Labuan Island is also known as the Pearl of South China Sea. Thus, it possesses multiple beautiful beaches. They are Batu Manikar Beach, Pancur Hitam Beach and Layang - Layangan Beach, just to name a few. All of these beaches including the Pancur Hitam Beach which we are talking about now has won the United Nation COBSEA Clean Beach Award 2008. Pancur Hitanm Beach is the home of Labuan's most luxurious house.
