Labuan Island

The way to get to Labuan from KK is either by air or by ferry. The ferry ticket costs RM39 for one way, and place of boarding is at the Jesselton Port.

It was a three hours journey by sea to Labuan.

Main activities in the island are wreck diving, sports fishing and duty free shopping. Search for abundance of chocolates and wine here.

It was a really really sunny and hot afternoon, and that deterred us a lot from enjoying the sight seeing around the town.

Well , briefly we went to the Labuan Museum , war memorial park in honor of the Indian Army who perished in the battle , and the Labuan International Sea Sports Complex.

The water sports here are jet skiing, wind surfing, scuba diving and fishing.

Fishing ships set the backdrop of the sea against the blue bare  sky.

And there is also the Labuan Marine Museum near the sports complex.The museum showcases marine wildlife.  Some of the pictures we took- corals, Nemo, shells and fishes.

The stuff that we bought.

We had steamboat for our dinner at the seaside, but the food was really below average.

We left the island next day hurriedly to catch the flight back KK and this is the last photo we had.
