A ilha de Labuan fica a 8 km da costa do Borneo, perto de Sabah e Brunei Darussalam, na parte norte da baía de Brunei Bay voltado para o Mar do Sul da China. É uma zona financeira Offshore internacional e uma zona de comercio livre.
Embora seja uma zona de comercio livre com todas as cervejas, bebidas alcoólicas, charutos e até carros, livres de impostos o custo de vida aqui em Labuan é relativamente mais alto que noutros locais do este da Malásia, em termos de alimentação e bens de primeira necessidade. Isto deve-se primariamente ao numero crescente de estrangeiros aqui radicados (from Halliburton, Schlumberger etc.) que trabalham nos poços de petróleo e gás, que fazem subir o custo de vida aqui.
A menos que procurem cerveja e charutos baratos, podem na realidade não passar por este destino durante a sua visita ao Bornéu para poupar tempo para outros locais com aspectos culturais bastante mais interessantes.

When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
