    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 …

    ... battered the roof (poor Richard's beard would be sodden), but this helped to put us all to sleep quickly. We had agreed to catch the 11am boat back together, sharing the cost again and I spent the morning walking some shorter trails with Kevin and we watched the proboscis monkeys and tried to escape the naughty macaque monkeys. After we parted I was walking on my own back to the ranger's office when a king cobra slithered across my path, the German boys had ...

    ... to do close by. Most of our trip to Borneo is organized but we have a day without programming and needed improvise a bit. And today, we had a good idea, tomorrow we would go to take a cooking class on Malaysian food.

    For now, all we have eaten here in Sabah is Chinese food in Chinese restaurants. And no wonder, because more than 50% of the population here is Chinese. By the ...

    ... been too bad, as we ascended it became a lot cooler so despite still sweating profusely I didn't feel as ill. I was also quite enjoying scrabbling over rocks and was quite getting into the climbing. However the last part was just crazy, we first of all ascending a vertical ladder drilled into the cliff face before then facing a series of ropes and ladders, again almost all vertical. It was pretty terrifying, if you fell you faced a minimum 3 foot drop onto sharp rocks ...
