Located on Borneo Island’s north-western side, Sabah is known for its super-sized offerings. The rafflesia – the world’s largest flower – is a parasitic plant that blooms here to a whooping one metre in diameter and the 30cm-long Kinabalu giant red leech (longer than the average human male foot) lives here. Additionally, the 4095m Mount Kinabalu – a granite fortress that’s known as the loftiest peak between the Himalayas and New Guinea – is found in Sabah’s Kinabalu National Park, a World Heritage Site. Falling just below the typhoon belt, there's a variety of natural riches on parade in the fertile region, plus the state experiences a balmy tropical climate, making it the perfect place to visit all year round.
