Travel Blogs from Kota Kinabalu


A travel blog entry by hectorisdiving

After the 45 minutes boat ride from Mabul to Semporna , we kill a couple of hours and took the night bus to Kota Kinanbalu, it was a shame because probably the views were great since the route was fairly much across Sabah, Borneo, one of the oldest rain forest in the world.

At times a bit nerve wracking when mitch become heavy footed. ...

Borneo- Bugs, blisters and bitching!

... of the local village kids who kept feeding James chillis. When he ate all their offerings without complaint he was declared some kind of chilli hero and the kids continue to follow him round and take it in turns to call him 'Ja-Mez'.

Sunday evening came to an end with a traditional Rungus tribal dance in our long house. One elaborately dressed guy and three women shuffling round and screaching to the sound of a gong. It was cultural for sure but I probably wont ...
