    The best cheap option available

    With limited accommodation at the base of mount Kinabalu, D'Villa is your best cheap option. With up to 12 beds crammed into one small dorm room, it is defiantly a cozy night (which is needed in the cool high altitude).
    The hot showers have an immense amount of pressure, which is perfect on the cold mornings

    Astrid and I have spent the day hiking around Mount Kinabalu. The entrance of the national park is at an altitude of 1,563 m.

    Wikipedia tells:
    Kinabalu Park, established as one of the first national parks of Malaysia
    in 1964, is Malaysia's first World Heritage Site designated by UNESCO in
    December 2000 for its "outstanding …

    ... to spot; he's the pale, poor looking one... These guys really know how to party. It's a bit loud and not what you'd expect here so after a small (but v polite) complaint, we've been upgraded to a fancy suite complete with double bath on our private terrace! I'll be ruined for backpacking forever after this! We also have access to a whole different pool complex. There's barely anyone about and it's gorgeous. All in all we've had a great time and it's been lovely to catch up. It's ...

    ... good understanding of the difficulty experienced by these gentle people during the war and their cruel occupation. We were picked up by a nice bus...but the seats were so small it was hard to squeeze couples together! Everyone in Asia is so petite! We jetted over to a beautiful island and spent the morning swimming and snorkeling in beautiful clean and warm waters. Although the snorkeling was a little disappointing ( we thought we saw many ...

    ... in all directions. Slowly the crowds thinned out, and after 1km, we passed the checkpoint and showed our passes - here they tick off that you are ascending, so that they can then tick you off on your return (if you do!). The next 1.7km to the summit was mainly steep areas of rock involving the need for ropes to help pull yourself up. I found it great fun, but for those more scared of the big drops below, it was a bit of a nightmare. We finally reached the summit at ...

    ... It did seem a shocking disappointment after the apartment complex in KL. However, the Kid cheerfully pointed out we had a TV, and that it got the World Cup station. We got the air con working and set about making ourselves at home.

    It is disconcerting arriving anywhere unfamiliar at nightfall. We nervously found our way to an Arabic restaurant, ordered a mundane meal and generally felt ill at ease. Back to the hotel, kids to bed ...
