          Located a short walk outside the main area of Kota Kinabalu, this guest house offers everything you should expect. Decent dorm rooms (6 beds), travellers breakfast (toast, tea, coffee and jams), free wifi and computers. To get the best price, pre-book this accommodation via hostelbooker or hostelworld (you can even do this the same day). They also offer some great dive courses.

The border crossings, while many of them due to going from Brunei to Malaysia, back into the other part of Br...

          We spent a lovely couple of days at the Rasa Ria resort on the coast just north of Kota Kinabalu. Located in a huge open sandy bay, the hotel was true luxury for a couple of nights - highly recommended for a romantic getaway - although it wasn't very romantic for us as Will's ever growing bite/boil decided to burst!
