Malaysia is considered a very modern, fast developing country. While this is cartainly true for Kuala Lumpur and other cities, there are still many places where you can feel like going back to 19th century or so. One of them are the islands off the east coast of Sabah, populated by the Sea Bajau. This small settlement, consisting of about 10 houses (some of them built directly in the sea) is located on the island of Mantabuan. Believe me, this is not a tourist trap, those oepole really live in extremely poor and simple conditions. A completely different world placed in a paradise-like setting of marvellous tropical islands.

Distinct color and good sharpness to show the colorful view at Sea Bajau village, you really show it like a tourism location although it is not, lovely peaceful atmosphere and relaxing environment, thanks for sharing.
