Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) - Day 159
Jan 31, 2008
Didn't really do a lot around Kota Kinabalu today. Had a walk on the waterfront, packed my bag for the mountain, bought some food (The food on the mountain is really expensive) and generally chilled out in my nice hotel room.
Caught the boat early this morning to Kota Kinabalu, the provincial capital of Sabah. Only a short 3 hour crossing to mainland Borneo. Decided to stay in a plush hotel tonight, haven't treated myself for quite a while, so I thought why not. Checked in and headed to the booking office for mountain accommodation on Mount Kinabalu. Luckily a bunk was available for tomorrow night so I headed to Kinabalu national park early tomorrow morning to start the climb of the biggest mountain in south-east Asia.
