A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?” Pointless, really… “Do the stars gaze back?” Now, that’s a question.

There’s just something about gazing at the stars at night. Especially when the sky is pitch black and all you can see are the glittering stars, it’s almost like the stars are staring right back at you.

In Sabah, there are a few places you can do stargazing, places with low levels of light pollution which also means rural areas. Nothing like spending a night or two under the blanket of stars!

Districts where you can do stargazing: Kota Belud, Kundasang, Tawau, Kudat and Lahad Datu (according to Sabah Stargazers).

AstroTourism is definitely picking up in Sabah and you shouldn’t miss out on us if you are an avid stargazer!
