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.

Sometimes I look at the price of something (a pack of gum, for example) and realize it's more expensive than in the US. It's hard to find food for under ten ringgits, while in Thailand I could easily ...
... orphaned. They spend 3-6 months in isolation to avoid them transmitting any illness to other animals at the reserve, and then they are brought back to health and nurtured for over 4 years, at which point they're sent off to Sepilok (the bigger reserve) for the last part of their upbringing. We were able to watch them feeding from a viewing point close by, and enjoyed watching them attempt to ward off the sneakier Long Tailed Macaques, who managed to pilfer most ...
... The mountain looked beautiful and was so cool driving there and looking down into the valley seeing that there were clouds below us! The boys left to climb the mountain and me and Anna were planning to get a boat to some little Islands for the day but after finding out there was bad weather forecast for the afternoon we changed our minds and decided to leave. We had to take a local bus and then a 6 hour coach before arriving in Sepilok at ...
... hostel where for the first night we shared a 4 person room (a double and a bunk) for 30mr each and tonight the 4 of us are in a dorm across the hallway (which is only for 5 people anyway) for 25mr each.

I will updated more soon - hopefully we will have decent wifi in Bali! Love Kat and Gia ...
