Sandakan's most famous expat author

What we say: 3.5 stars

Though the original house was destroyed during WWII, a replica has been constructed and turned into a museum filled with relics from the author's life. Literary fans will love matching passages from her novels to rooms in the mansion, but others might find the museum a bore.

The souvenir shop sells paperback copies of Keith's books for a whopping 69 ringgit. To get here it's a 15-minute uphill walk from the city centre or taxis charge 10 ringgit. Since you're up here anyway, pair it with lunch at the charming English Tea House.
