The Sandakan Food Festival was held from August 26 to September 2, with a selection of fringe events such as the “Amazing Sandakan Food Race”, a “Bao Mountain Eating Competition, and cooking demonstrations by Ropuhan di Tanak Wagu and Sandakan Master Chef Wahidan.
Kota Kinabalu was represented by three teams from Sabah Tourism Board and Sri Pelancongan Sabah as participants for the Amazing Sandakan Food Race. Despite all the clueless moments to solve puzzles and clues to figure out various locations in Sandakan, Team Chloe and Shirley finished at sixth place! All Sandakan teams swept the Top 5 placings, obviously because they know Sandakan better!
Sandakan Food Festival was organised by the Sandakan Tourism Association (STAN) with the support of the Sandakan Good Food Club. The event was supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Environment Sabah, Sabah Tourism Board, Sandakan Municipal Council, and the community leaders of Sandakan.
Looking forward to next year’s festival!
