Everyone, KK Lites, Sabahans, Malaysians, and Citizens of the Worlds, let us all vote for Sipadan Island.
Why Sipadan Island, Sabah‘s jewel of the ocean? From the surface Sipadan Island looks very much like many other ordinary oceanic islands, surrounded by blue sea, white sandy beaches and lush green forest filled up the centre. But break through the surface underneath the water Sipadan Island presents a whole different world. This is the metropolitian of the water world. Rows and rows of corals and seaplants similar to buildings in the city, while marine life, fishes, nudi branch, swimming to and from all directions even more complex than the heavy traffic in downtowns. With as many as 3,000 species of marine creatures living in and around Sipadan island as their habitat, no wonder the great late Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau mentioned “I have seen other places like Sipadan 45 years ago. Now we have found again an untouched piece of art.”
