Super Fun trip to Sabah... *Sabah bah*


Where: Kota Kinabalu, Mersilau, Kundasang & Ranau; Sabah
When: Mid April.A short 4 days trip
What: Have fun and enjoy the scenery
Why: Cheap  RM 230 return AirAsia tix KL-KK
With whom: Azie and K.Long

I bought late night tix to Kota Kinabalu (KK) assuming that we'll have 24 hours the next day. However it was a bad idea as I made my friend pick us up around midnight in KK. It was raining cats and dogs when we departed from KL and it's still raining when we arrived KK.

The last flight...

It was Thursday morning, my first time in KK. The first place we went to was Mamutik Island and Manukan Island. The corals are beautiful and the sea creatures are just fine compared to Redang Island. We had late lunch at the Jesselton Point (the jetty). The final activity of the day was we watched midnight movie; Oblivian. In KK, we stayed at Sensi Backpackers Hostel.

On Friday, we drove to Kundasang (this is where the Mount Kinabalu is located). We stayed at Kiram's Village near Mersilau. The view is super awesome!!

On Saturday we visited the Cattle Farm, Kundasang Memorial Park and after that we went to Poring Hotspring and waterfall in Ranau and drove back to KK that evening.

On our last day, we shopped at Gaya Street market and ate dinner at the Philipines market.

Where ever you go, blend in with the community; then you'll find all the awesome places unseen by tourist.

Wassalam & Cheers.
