Tawau, the third largest town of Sabah was originally one of the earliest ports of East Sabah being active since the late 1890’s. Located on the South Eastern coastal lands of Sabah, Tawau or Tawao as it was known in the early 1890’s began as a tiny nucleus of only 200 inhabitants that crossed borders from Kalimantan. These immigrants fled from Bulungan and Tawi-Tawi, away from the oppressive rule of the Dutch ‘masters’. The villagers soon began a small trade with passing ships including Dutch trading boats. Not long after, the community began trading sea and jungle produce such as rattan, birds’ nest and rubber with imports such as dammar, Indian rubber, tortoise shells etc.

The British had a strong influence with the British North Borneo Chartered Company (BNBC) where trading was one of the main industries here. 

Tawau is also connected via roads from most cities around Sabah, and the Tawau Airport with direct flights here forms Kuala Lumpur and other major cities of Malaysia. While most people would transit in Tawau as the main gateway to Sipadan and Mabul Islands, the airport sits in between Semporna and Tawau, therefore this list of things to do in Tawau was created for general interest, especially for travelers wanting to explore further into one of Sabah’s old cities.
