Tropical fish galore!

A travel blog entry by rozieapps

Arriving on the beautiful island of Borneo, in the area of Sabah, we were both incredibly excited. The sea sparkled like diamonds as the plane landed and the sprinkling of islands echoed paradise. Even the heavy rain didn't put us off. One thing to say about Kota Kinabalu is, it rains a lot. Nearly every afternoon there was some form of rain or …

På stranden i Kota Kinabalu

A travel blog entry by jakobane

Hvis vi var faldet i søvn på den ni timer lange bustur fra Semporna til Kota Kinabalu, så vågnede vi op, da vi satte os ind i den offentlige bus hvor der blev spillet "danza kuduro" og andet Dance så højt at vi kunne mærke bassen i maven. Vi havde kun ganske kort tid i KK. Første aften tog vi på kulinarisk eventyr og satte os på en kinesisk …

Kota Kinabalu- der Berg ruft, doch wo ist er?

A travel blog entry by kaykathi


Wir hatten uns auf den Deal –Reise nach Kota Kinabalu (K.K)– eingelassen. Was blieb uns denn schon übrig? Wir bekamen nur ein 2B$ Ticket für das Durchqueren des Ferry Terminals, nichts weiter & wir sollten uns immer an den Ticketverkäufer heften! Also ab zum Immigration Office im Ferry Terminal in Brunei & sich den …

KK the KL of Borneo

A travel blog entry by roopa_anish


The book says to book book book! When you come to Borneo and they are not wrong, to climb Mount Kinabalu is a huge feat, much more of a massive trek then the Inca Trail, a mad trek for mad trekkers. We obviously being the lazy people we are could not be bothered to do it, shame on us I know. But it would have required so much effort. We saw the …

Dirty Old Town

A travel blog entry by dolly_would...


Nothing much happened in KL. Wandered around still feeling rubbish from Singapore. Ate some food, saw some trees, drank some beer & slept quite a lot. Got a flight this morning up to Chiang Mai in Thailand. The flight was brilliant, we flew back up over all of the places which I've been to over the last few weeks. Have settled in to my gorgeous …

    Really lovely staff, very helpful. Free breakfast (toast and tea and coffee) until 10am but you can help yourself and we were able to have hot drinks all day. The staff were helpful when booking a climb up Mount Kinabalu, and always smiling. A wonderful balcony that views into the forest with views of butterflies and sometimes monkeys. A lovely little chill out spot.
    Only minus is the walls are thin and the floors, so people who are noisy are a pain but there are plenty of signs asking guests to be considerate!
