Take a walk on the wild side

From Kuching we relocated ourselves further north to Kota Kinabalu, the capital of the state of Sabah in the east.

We tried our luck at another national park, Kinabalu NP, which is normally attracts tourists trying to trek to the top of Mount Kinabalu.
After the mountainous meanderings of the Himalayas, Hampi and Adam's Peak, we …

Mount Kinabalu DONE!

... a few hours till sunrise we wanted to get a move on, thankfully Petros knew we wanted to get a move on so practically forced his way through the crowd with us following behind. It was still pitch black at this point, with only our head torches for light but the higher we ascending the more lights of towns and cities in the distance could be seen, we just hoped it would stay that clear for the sunrise. With around one kilometre to go we were ...

Day off

A travel blog entry by cramow on Apr 04, 2014

... Back to the beach, so yes, when swimming I think I was scanning the nearby water before every stroke just to be on the safe side! By midday it was too hot to sunbathe and by now I had a rather red back (despite factor 50) so we headed for shade in the nearby cafe, where I enjoyed a couple of drinks and a hotdog. We spent a couple of hours there sat reading our books (almost finished 'the fault in our stars' which has been a good read) before venturing back into ...

Kicking it in Kinabalu

... contour of the hill, like a vibrant caterpillar. Once at the Kinabalu Park we entered the shade of the jungle canopy, walking to the start of the canopy bridge walks. Up to 50m off the forest floor, we swayed in the patchy sunlight close to the canopy top. Birds resting in the upper branches to the left and right of the suspension bridges dangling between trees. After we climbed back down to the rich brown earth we trekked up to a kipungit waterfall through the jungle. The ...

... were having a bbq. We became objects of photography with a group of youths all wanting their picture taken with Mitch and I often saw cameras being aimed at us from afar. I had a group of ladies who wanted to take my photo as well . We came home and started our day of feasting and Christmas celebration. We showered had a simple breakfast of toast jam and vegimite and then hid our first secret santa present. Our ...

    It has cheap rooms and also good deals with 20% off if you stay 2 or more nights. The location is out of the hustle and bustle of the city centre and a 5 minute walk from the AirAsia terminal but you need a taxi to get to/from the other terminal. About 100m walk from a quiet beach and some great places to eat. The staff are very friendly and organise plenty of activities so you won't be bored. Also there is a communal kitchen and relaxing area for everyone to use. Overall a really good stay and I would recommend it highly if you don't mind being a little away from town.

    give it a miss unless you need to be near the airport

    It is very convenient for the airport if you are flying with air asia from terminal 2 - literally 10 min walk and easy to do even with a big rucksack. The beach is dirty and there is an open drain going to it and the food court on the beach is average. Other than that the accomodation is over priced for what you get - we are coming back this way but will stay elsewhere.

    This is a fifteen minute walk from the airport, with a big backpack. Not located in central Kota Kinabalu, but it's easy enough to walk to the local bus stop and head in from there. The rooms are only ok, but for the price they are fine. I went out to Sandakan for a night and then came back and the staff were very accommodating. They held my bags and let me get right back into my own room the next day.
