Anyway, I took it in my stride and proceeded with my travelling plans. Upon arrival I found out that the incursion actually took place a 100 kms from where the town is. English is not widely spoken as everyone speaks BM (but sounded more like Bahasa Indonesia to me). Most of the retailers are Indian Muslims and Pakistanis involved in textile trade and money changing.
The Lahad Datu airport terminal reminds me of a single storey bungalow house and is about a 3-minute drive to town. The taxi fare from the airport to the town is RM10.
Herebelow, is a video and some photos on Lahad Datu.
