Review of Chimney

Chimney
Reviewed February 11, 2013

The visit to the chimney visitors spot was interesting and strange. What purpose did the chimney serve? I thought it might be a ventilation shaft for the local mines but I was wrong. What do you think? Travel the 100 yards up the road to the bird sanctuary. It's well worth the visit but it is upsetting to see the majestic birds of prey in their small cages

Situated at the north-east corner of the duty free island of Labuan;it is one of the most important heritage of Labuan island.It tells visitors that Labuan was a coal mining town few centuries ago;today the tall chinmney stands as testimonial to that coal mine;most visitors are clearly enchanted to see such heritage in this part of the world;its something no visitor should miss on a trip to this fantasy island where beer/wine is cheaper than branded mineral water;imported perfumes & chocolates all duty free!

There is also a sign that says they don't know what the chimney is even for. So really it has no relation to the coal mining history. Also the chimney got rebuilt recently so isn't even really historical. It was all very weird. Well presented though. And there's not much else to see in Labuan.

quite boring, but you see a little bit of the history and the birdpark is next to it.
