Port
Semporna, Malaysia
Located on the east coast of Sabah, Semporna is used as the gateway for visitors travelling to spectacular nearby diving destinations such as Sipidan and Mabul islands

Initially establish by Chinese traders, it is small enough to be easily explored by foot, the highlight being the collection of buildings built over the sea on the water. The local Bajau people for many years lived on boats and have recently moved onto the land.
