Walk along the main road and then turn right to Agnes Keith House . Continue walking and you well see a sign for the 100 steps, an easy walk down. The Heritage trail is well signposted

Another trail to show the towns history. lots of hills but worth the buildings you see. The 100 stairs that have been reproduced and more like 300 with sloping walkways in-between.

This walk takes in all the heritage buildings around Sandakan. Need to be fairly fit to do it. Morning is best time when it's cooler. Lots of steps. Chinese memorial and cemetery, good. Agnes Keith house is fabulous.

This trail is extremely run down. Most of the way is on broken pathways so slippery I nearly landed in the jungle a few times. There is also a large part on a busy curving road with no pavement. What you see is a few...More
