Transportation

How do you get around?

Tawau's public transportation is only suitable for locals. So, It is recommended that visitors are to take taxis if they would like to go around the town. The taxi fares are relatively cheap and they charge at flat rate. Local people mostly travel by buses. Traffic jam is not a problem in Tawau. The main roads such as the Dunlop Street and Jalan Utara only get jammed before and after office hours. But you won't get caught in a jam for more than 15 minutes.

Town Area

Basically you can't get lost in Tawau as the town is really well planned, compared to most of the major towns in Malaysia. The town is designed in grid system. You can get in and out of the town by two major roads - Jalan Utara and Jalan Apas. Jalan Utara links to the west side of the town and to places like Merotai and Kalabakan. Jalan Apas is a dual carriageway that links Tawau to Kunak and Lahad Datu and vice versa.

The interesting places in Tawau are all about getting closer to mother nature. The places are for people to get away from their busy lives. Nothing is more relaxing than being far away from the city.

Tawau Hills Park

This park is located about 30km from town. This park is being taken care by Sabah Parks. The park is a home to macaques, redleaf monkeys, forest tortoise, giant squirrels, hombills and pheasants. Occasionally, one may chance upon civet cats and clouded leopard. The park is a favourite picnic spot on weekends offering visitors the delights of nature -meadering streams, water falls, hotsprings and jungle trails. Hostels are available at minimal charge. Visitors can also camp here.
