#Sandakan 山打根 - Part 1 : @fourpointssandakan
Out of random thought and invitation, I bought my flight to Sandakan two months before. It was a great experience of foodie hunting around Sandakan town and outskirt of Sandakan. More over, we had so much of food in one day since breakfast until after dawn with additional of few landmarks as well. This is how we spend our short getaway and short honeymoon.
And such, it was one of the "milestone" that we break our record of having nine (9) meals a day. During the ninth meal, I felt a bit dizzy and it should be the seafood Bak Kut Teh that I had earlier. Oh my... To be advised, not to have so many foods in a day! :D
From this trip, I have met a Sandakan blogger who found me via online months ago and just to let you know, he is an interesting yet generous person who I met! :) A little secret to share, I do have Sandakan readers too! I'm so flattered and able to meet them in person!

Here goes with my first Sandakan exploration Part 1. It was sunset when we went to have a look at their infinity pool area. We got to see the city view sunset instead of sea view sunset as seen from Kota Kinabalu beach.

The best part of traveling is to stay in a good hotel after a whole day of exploration. Four Points by Sheraton would be our choice whereby it is located at the center of town and waking up to the magnificent view of Sandakan bay. :)
The scenery above is the view from 13th Floor, where The Eatery, the Infinity Pool located. It just WOW, the higher we go, we could see Sandakan town and the wide sea even clearer.

We stayed in 25th Floor and this is how our room looks like. :) For live view, do "PLAY" the video above! There's a short clip of what to expect from Sheraton Sandakan.
- The Room -
Spacious room and comfortable environment. We did went out for early walk as well, the safety is fine. However, we shall bear in mind that every where we must aware of the surrounding people. :) Army and police are in town doing their surveillance, so it is okay to walk around.
