034/365 Aerial view of Pulau Gaya

Image 034 is an aerial view of Pulau Gaya, the largest island in the Tunku Abdul Rahman marine national park, situated just off the northwest coast of Borneo, opposite Kota Kinabalu. The villages that you can see around the edges are the stilt villages where illegal immigrants from the Phillipines have set up residence. We were warned not to go there by the locals as it is a very dangerous place with a high crime rate.

Pulau Gaya, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia, April, 2010.
