Anjung Ketam

Located at Tanjung Aru. Pre-book is a must. One of the main attraction in Labuan. It is said that if you come to Labuan, it's a must to enjoy its crab delicacies. "Anjung Ketam", at Tanjung Aru (not that Tanjung Aru in Kota Kinabalu) is well-known for crab dishes. This food court consists of 4 stalls, all serving fresh crabs, lobsters and other seafoods. Advance bookings are advised, especially if you want your foods to ready by the time you come, and also some ingredients may have run out if you don't book early ahead. Some of the examples are crab curry, crab in butter milk, and just boiled crab (locals prefer this because they say it retains most of the crab taste). May cost you RM 15-RM 30 per person.

Interesting settlement where houses, shops, and mosques are built on wooden houses on the water shore. No boat is needed to get in to the village. It is accessible by road till the parking areas near the entrance. You can then, choose to walk around the village on the wooden bridge or steel concrete walkways (e.g. Patau- Patau 1). The villagers are friendly and don't mind tourists walking around their villages and snapping pictures.

The Chimney

The Chimney is just a short drive from the town just like any other destination due to the island size. This 106 feet high red brick stack, also known by the local as Punil, is an artifact from Labuan's coal mining era (1847–1912). However no one knows the true purpose of the chimney. Entry is free of charge. Close to the chimney there is a small '''Chimney Museum'''.
