TAWAU > HOTELS IN TAWAU TOWN >
Iíve always been intrigued by Tawau, the lonely spot on the east coast of Sabah,
3rd largest town in the state with 160,000 people. Itís like an outpost to me, the wild frontier where Malaysia meets Indonesia meets the Philippines. So one weekend of March Ď07, I packed my bag and 7 of my kins for a quickie to Tawau and its sidekick, Semporna, at the very eastern edge of Malaysia.
We have chosen to bunk at this old-ish budget Hotel Tawau, along Chester Road in old town, run by the owner himself, the affable Mr George Chang. He says his uncle started up this hotel in the 50s. Spartan, but spacious rooms.........
