SABAH is a "very satisfying" place to visit, according to pharmacy students of the International Medical University who stormed Sabah Muesum's Heritage Village, Monday. "This is my first visit and my first experience to see these unique ethnic tribes and they are so friendly," said Kwan Zuan Ur, after having a whale of a time dancing with the Papar Kadazandusun cultural troupe, including Minister Datuk Masidi himself.
Asked how they got to know the Heritage Village, she said: "Our driver brought us." Apart from culture, the other memorable aspect of Sabah was the seafood. "We were in Sandakan the last couple of days and practically gorged on lots of seafood because it's so nice, so fresh and yet so cheap compared to KL where it's so hard to get, so expensive and not fresh," she said. "The scenery is fantastic, the beaches pristine. Here you have fresh clean air, KL is polluted, Port Dickson's beaches are polluted," Zuan Ur continued.
Sepilok differed from what she had "visualized" she noted. "Only two Orangutans came out but they looked natural and much slimmer than the big bloated ones we had seen KL zoos." "We are very curious especially about Mt Kinabalu. We want to climb it," Zuan Ur said. "Sabah is good fun," said Yun Lee, classmate of Zuab Ur. "What makes Sabah very special is its wealth of unique cultures which we cannot see in KL so I am very happy to have seen them."
