Home to some of the darkest skies in the world, Kudat, located in the northern tip of Borneo, is an unexplored astrophotographer’s dream. Facing the Sulu Sea, picture miles of untouched coastlines, dense tropical rainforests and pristine beaches. While known for attracting divers and scientists from the world over, this secluded location boasts clear, starry skies from which the milky way and even the galactic core are visible to the naked eye.
