Labuan Square or Dataran Labuan is situated in downtown Labuan. Besides a football field, the square features an open-air stage, the main venue for the island’s major events and performances.
Backing the stage is a raised platform with flags belonging to the 14 Malaysian states arranged in a semi-circle, as well as replicas of the ‘Chimney’, Labuan’s most famous landmark.
The picturesque western end of Labuan Square is also beautifully landscaped with a variety of flowers, plants and fountains.
The main road in downtown Labuan is Jalan Merdeka, which takes you right by the square. At the eastern end of this long road are the Grand Dorsett and Billion Waterfront hotels as well as the Financial Park complex.
The square is also located right by the busy waterfront area, which is always a hive of activity. You’ll find many eateries along this stretch specializing in Malay, Chinese and Indian cuisine, as well as popular fast food outlets.
