Trip to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia


Most of the tourists who visits Kota Kinabalu takes a 3-day journey to the peak of Mt. Kinabalu.

Since we didn't have that much of a luxury, we just managed to get to the mighty mountain's foothill as part of the tour package: Mt. Kinabalu day tour.

While on the said tour, we were treated with a relaxing hot bath at Poring Hot Spring plus the sumptuous lunch buffet prior to the canopy walk followed by a visit to a blooming rafflesia flower.


Explored TARP (Tunku Abdul Rahman Park) and visited three islands namely Sapi, Manukan and Mamutik islands. Of the three, only Sapi is amazing, the other two was not that much. 


One thing that is amazing when you travel by sea in Malaysia is that all of their transportation boats are speed-boats, so there's no dull moment and infact, when the driver swerves to turn for example, there's that feeling that you're James Bond for a moment.


We explored Padas River as well and tried their rafting. I vouch that our CDO-rafting is a whole lot better and fun. 


The city center does not have much to offer apart from the Atkinson's Clock Tower, City Mosque, State Mosque, Signal Hill and Menera Tun Mustapha Building.


Most of our dinner and sometimes lunch happens in Metro Jaya but the best thing is that their prices are very cheap as far as clothing, shoes and perfumes are concerned. I hate to say this but shopping is a definite must while in the metro.
