    I chose this hotel since I had an early morning flight out and didn't want to risk getting stuck in traffic if stayed in the city. The hotel is located very close to the airport (5 minutes from Terminal 2 - Air Asia) and 10 minutes from Kota Kinabalu International Airport. The hotel also provides a free shuttle service as well.

    The room was basic but comfortable and while the hotel is not located in the city per se, the city center can very easily be reached by taking a taxi for about 15 ringgit. You could also possibly walk into the city if you have time to kill and want to catch some rays.

    We left KK on the 12th and headed to the main body of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. I sense that this will be the last time we will ever visit Borneo.

    I remember when we first started traveling together, Borneo was extremely high on my bucket list. Ever since I was a child, I had been fascinated by stories of early man, of where we had come from …

    We have travelled some around the world, but travelling from Denpasar International airport we have never had to pass so many counters/checkpoints. First they check your ticket and passport, then they scan all your bags at a security check, then you have to check in manually at a checkin counter, then you have to pay a passenger fee at yet another …

    ... this reason make sure you pack an extra base layer for the second day). Dinner was a relatively decent buffet, and by that time all I'd eaten was a few Clif Bars and M&Ms, so it tasted truly delicious. We then had lights out at 8pm, which is entirely necessary since you have to get up at 2am to get ready for the summit hike. Unfortunately the staff don't really abide by lights out, so the cabin remained fairly noisy throughout ...

    ... thanks to Alanis Morissette. The following day we went diving in the Kota Kinabalu Marine Park. It was a good day and a couple of turtles were spotted but the visibility wasn't the best and left us more excited for the Great Barrier Reef! We also took a trip to the Kinabalu National Park where we learnt loads about the trees and plants (now we can survive alone in the jungle, just call us Bear Grylls). This included a suspended canopy walk in the forest which took about half ...

    ... br> I first had one of these 8 years ago on the Teoman Islands, and they have been an obsession ever since. I only bought one originally because the guy making them was stirring an oil barrel of batter with a Black and Decker drill onto which he had somehow attached an industrial sized mixing tool, and I thought he has got to be worth a ringgit or two on comedy value alone. Only Albert Hoffman has ever cooked up anything as consciousness raising ...
