Yet again i was previously, shamefully unaware how big Borneo actually is. Borneo is the 3rd biggest Island in the world, behind Greenland and new Guinea.

We left Miri and had a Air Asia half hour flight to Kota Kinabalu by the time we took off we were landing it was that quick but if we had taken a bus it would have taken 10 hours as they keep crossing the Brunei Border. Once we got into KK we found the prebooked hotel and were told that the room had been double booked and we were booked into …

Kota Kinabalu Day 2

... stolen by one of the bigger ones but he doesn't seem to mind and does some rolling down the hill and some swinging about on the rope things Probiscus monkeys are brilliant.

We trapse back down the way we came up, and due to not motoring up a steep climb, notice about 10. There's miniature horses, ...

Typical Scots and Cracking Lightening

... apart from the hotel guests and even then they are confined to the swimming/water sports area! When in places like this before we have always been hassled by those trying to sell you a "foot massage" or "jet ski ride" but not here - nothing! The beach is immaculate too! We seen some random hermit crabs and seaweed, occasional shell and spoots but that was it! Walked for ages barefoot in the sea with a nice breeze and some cheesy photo ...

    Highly recommended! If you are seeking cheap and yet clean and convenient I would recommend this budget hostel. It only cost me RM25/night. The only downside is that you have to pay for Internet access. Would definitely return again.

    Simple, cheap accomodation in the city centre. No luxury but good option for one night and quite appropriate for the money.
