Watch and Learn Sabah (North Borneo)’s History Video in 5 Minutes

Need a quick way to learn Sabah (North Borneo)’s history? This YouTube video takes you through the history of Sabah from prehistoric times until today.

There’s very little history of Sabah (North Borneo) written on Malaysian textbooks therefore many people are not aware of how North Borneo, which was once a country, has rich culture, history and heritage. If you think you don’t know much about Sabah’s history, this video might help you.

The above YouTube clip was made by a YouTube user called ‘thesimplestway‘ whom I assume is a Sabahan. (If you’re the person please get in touch with us and we’ll update this post).

A series of different images was put together into one video and the image transition was also synced with different background music such as the ones below. Unfortunately there’s no English version of the video.
