Travel Blogs from Kota Kinabalu

The other side of Borneo

A travel blog entry by jessicachant88


We got on a bus to Kota Kinabalu, which is past Brunei but still in Borneo and only (apparently) 7 hours away. We didn't realise we'd be going through Brunei and out the other side though, and because of the shape of Brunei, we actually entered twice. So after 10 different stamps at 4 border crossings and a Borneo state border, we finally made it to Kota Kinabalu 13 hours later!! After getting to our hostel at about 10, the four of us grabbed ...

Gradually we recovered and sat down watching the world go by as we waited for our dinner. Afterwards we were absolutely shattered so went to bed at 8 to try and catch up on sleep. Overall a pretty awesome day....hopefully our legs don't hurt too much in the morning for the trek ...

We had a nice evening planned of going down to the seafront for a nice meal and having a few drinks in the local bars but thanks to the rain we had to run to the nearest restaurant (KFC) and eat there before heading back again wet through. So a Friday night spent in the hotel...can't complain too much though as we've had amazing weather up till yesterday and I am in Borneo! Hopefully the weather picks up tomorrow for some island ...
