The wooden house "Newlands" was rebuilt in 1946-1947 and was the first wooden house in Sandakan, constructed after World War II due to the destruction of the original building during the war. This house was later turned into a museum in 2001 and managed by the Sabah Museum Department. Agnes became famous for her work, her first book titled "Land Below the Wind," which made her famous in 1939 and has since popularized Sabah. The book was written clearly and humorously, depicting life, especially among the locals during British rule. She then wrote two other books titled "Three Came Home" in 1946 and "White Man Returns" in 1951. Both books were written in this house. The locals still consider Agnes as the "Ambassador" for Sabah, also known as the "Land Below the Wind," through her literary works. Her books are still widely read worldwide. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant. After lunch, you will be transferred to Sandakan Airport for your departure flight. Until we meet again, greetings from PT. Asia Medan Travel & Tour.
