Continuing from The trip to Labuan
OK. There is Labuan the island, there is Labuan the town. Obviously the town is part of the much bigger island. But before we can explore the island we have to get settled down first at the town.
Labuan island has the special position of being a tax-free haven and an off-shore banking/investment destination (I hope I wrote that correctly) with activities centred in town. However we're not here for its financial position. So these initial pictures hardly reflect that. In fact we found it to be a rather quiet town maybe because we arrived just after office hours?
Then again these pictures were not taken at the financial area. Still it should be sufficient to show that Labuan is a fairly large town.
Despite the quiet and lack of activity upon our arrival it is apparent Labuan is rather developed.
Back to the jetty.
So far I could see the atmosphere relaxed and unhurried. And that is how I like it...
