    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.

Big boats go out with small single man boats on board they go out to sea drop them …

    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 …

    ... the bar is some chinese dragon, gongs and some really terrible flute player, chanting and other mad ****. Apparently for 9 quid you can get an hours massage and a crispy duck. Not sure what the duck will add to the overall massage, (being cooked and crispy), but it might be good for the eatings afterwards. That might be on the agenda for tomorrow after we replace the bug spray via the free shuttle service into town....maybe after having a bath each. The bath is amazing.... Leah ...

    After that we made a short visit to see the famous Atkinson Clock Tower on the bluff by Signal Hill Road and is the oldest standing structure in KK.
