Sabah : : North Borneo
 
   Sabah takes up the northern part of the world's third largest island, Borneo. The State, the second largest in the Federation of Malaysia, has the South China Sea on its western flank, and the Sulu Sea on the east. Towards the Southeast, there is the Celebes Sea. Sabah shares borders with Sarawak, Brunei Darussalam and Kalimantan, which is part of Indonesia. Kota Kinabalu formerly known as Jesselton is the capital of the State.
 
   Sabah's more recent history can be traced back to 1881 when the British North Borneo Company was set up to rule North Borneo, the State's old name. The Company administered the State until 1942, when the Japanese invaded and took control. After War World II, the British returned and turned Sabah into a Crown colony. In 1963 Sabah gained her independence and joined the Federation of Malaysia.

   Sabah's has retained her traditional charm and freshness, as well as kept in step with the 20th Century. Sabah surely will impress millions with her unique and unspoiled character, which is truly Borneo's Paradise and also known by the famed romantic name of "The Land Belaw The Wind".
