Lahad Datu is basically a planters' town, surrounded by miles of cocoa and oil palm plantations. It is also the gateway to the virgin rainforest of the renowned Danum Valley Conservation Area, The Tabin Wildlife Reserve in the east and Madai Caves further south. A settlement is said to have existed here as early as the 15th century as excavations have unearthed potteries confirming contact with the imperial dynasties of China. Just east of Lahad Datu, lies the village of Tunku, which achieved notoriety as the base of Illanum pirates and slave traders in the 19th century.
