WINDOWS TO TAWAU
For travelers visiting Tawau, remember to clearly specify your requirement of a room with window. For small towns in Malaysia, shop-house style partitioned hotel rooms never received a single direct ray from the sun. For the local this is normal, but to many tourist its like a prison cell.
Tawau is not yet a tourist destination like Kuala Lumpur, the recent hotel bloom in this unknown town is not cause of visiting tourists but from the oil palm industries.
Tawau is the transit point for the oil palm plantations workers who come to the town in transit between towns or just simply come to town for an overnight during weekend as an escape from the boring plantations. This is a huge industry with a huge population of employee.
These workers (the blue collars : mechanic, supervisors, engineers, managers etc) all they need is a low cost room for the night disregard whether there is a window or not.
That resulted plentiful of low cost rooms available the town.
These Low cost rooms + low cost "I can fly" + low cost sea-foods attracted the recently years steady flow of "Tourists" flying from other part of Malaysia to Tawau. Unfortunately while a low cost room is what they desired , the no-window may be disappointing.
So remember to clearly specify your requirement of a room with window. And, even batter, ask for window view of sea and town..... and spare the no-windows rooms for the blue-collars from plantations.
Local guests are happy with the variety of western and local delicacy to start the morning.
For oversea guests who purposely fly to Tawau to experience Tawau famous fresh sea-foods, may not be contended to start a morning with just these, then there are many other delicacy waiting for you to explore outside.
