Labuan is an island off the coast of Brunei Bay. Once a part of the Sultanate of Brunei, Labuan was ceded to the British in 1846. It remained under British colonial rule for 115 years, except for three years when it was under the Japanese occupation.
Labuan became part of Sabah in 1963. Its strategic location and proximity to major shipping routes and offshore oil and gas fields has boosted the local economy. As Malaysia’s only truly deepwater anchorage, Labuan is a free port, a Federal Territory, and an International Offshore Financial Centre. Bandar Labuan is the main town, with airport and ferry connections, and is a popular tourist destination offering good diving, snorkelling, beautiful beaches and nature trails.
