Current conditions doesn’t exactly allow for travelling anywhere, but once the worse is over and the nation can once again freely visit other states for a short getaway or two, Sabah is one of the best destinations for those looking for some peace and tranquility. (Seriously, don’t go now though, wait until the curve is flattened, it will take a while but it’ll be worth the wait.) 

We previously brought to you a list of lesser-known islands you can visit in Sabah. This time we’re going to highlight some beautiful photos that can be the inspiration for your next trip’s journal entry or Instagram post!
