Is it safe to go Tawau now as I read some negative news on their security. My friend also told me that there's a lot of kidnapping and tourist being shot there. Can someone who went there recently advice on this?
I am looking for all sorts of info online but can't get a solid recommendation for dinner (Seafood) and breakfast.

Any good breakfast at Tawau airport and how much taxi fare cost to town?
Buses from Tawau to KK cost about RM70plus but they leave only in the evening and takes 8 hrs. Any idea how much it would cost for a private taxi/bus/car for 3 people? Would it be faster also? I emailed some travel operators but no response from them. Any contacts?

Hi all, still putting the finishing touches to our 2012 holidays in March. We are considering visiting the islands around Sipidan and staying on one of them for a couple of nights. We want to experience pristine white sand beaches, good snorkelling (no diving lthough we understand this area to be the finest in the worl, and good dining at the chosen resort. The Islands we are looking at are Mabul,,,Mataking,,,,,Kapalai,,,,and Pom Pom,
Any comments on these islands or other suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
We will be staying at Tawau for a couple of nights before going to the Islands
Many thanks for your help
