Recently when given a chance to visit Semporna Sabah I took a walk from Seafest hotel to Semporna main town areas.
I took less then 10 minutes to reach and spend about 2 hours walking around the small township.
Most interesting were the view of people boarding and unloading those water taxies shuttling people and goods from Semporna to those islands nearby.
The wet market were as usual very wet and the fish displayed looks pretty fresh.
A sizeable tuna was for sale.
Among other think that I have in my mind was to make a count on shop houses converted to swiftlet farm house.
There were at least two units where the top floor were converted.
Both were doing well. One with top entry while the second was side entry.
This town looks a heaven for swiftlet.
If there are no guidelines to stop people from converting shop houses into BHs I choose this town as one of the best place in Sabah.
Most of these buildings were pretty old and suitable to be converted.
With the recent stringent guidelines I doubt if it is a good idea any more.
Have a look at some pictures that was taken during my walk in Semporna, Sabah.
