Epilogue: Borneo's Faustian Existence

A travel blog entry by mmlivelife2011


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 …

Fly, fly, fly

A travel blog entry by sofiabennie

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 …

Arrival in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

A travel blog entry by worldcitizen83

The next morning, I awoke and took a 6:45am shuttle to the airport. It was a very quick 5-7 minute ride to the terminal. For this trip, I decided to use Air Asia since it was the most cost-effective option and seemed pretty reliable. When I got to the check-in counter, I was a little bit worried. When the agent ran my new passport in the machine, …

The Amazing Race

A travel blog entry by dsh

Today was crazy, incredible and fun. My day started out in Penang (Georgetown). I was supposed to have enough time for breakfast at the hotel then head to the airport for my 10am flight to Kota Kinabalu on the island of Borneo. Well, to start off I over slept, but had ordered taxi the night before. Good thing because the taxi driver finally got tired of waiting and had the desk call my room... Now stuck in morning traffic I ...

... one leg, they other muscle gives in too and it looks like he is in a fair amount of discomfort and pain, but he's determined to keep going which I'm relieved about, I don't what would happen to my trek if he wasn't! Slow and steady definitely proved the way for the day and we were glad to reach Laban Rata where we're staying and get allocated our dorm bed on arrival. I get acquainted with the others in the 6 bed dorm and they all seem to be lovely people, and ...

    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.
