Bus from KK to Mt Kinabalu and back?

by ara2


I would like to spend a day at Mt Kinabalu surrounding area (not to attempt the climb as yet!!). I find that there are buses that go to Mt Kinabalu in the morning (from KK) but I couldn't see any information on buses coming back to KK in the afternoon / evening. Will be very grateful if anyone could help me with information on schedule, where to get the bus and perhaps roughly the cost. Other alternative if there aren't any?

Thanks very much for your help!!


Re: Bus from KK to Mt Kinabalu and back?

There is no fixed timing on buses coming back to KK. You can ride on any bus going to KK that will pass through the Mt. Kinabalu National Park. Most buses comming from Ranau to KK will usually take passanger at Mt. Kinabalu.

Taxi would be the same. You can use the city taxi or use the long distance taxi. the city taxi (regular) will usually charge for a trip. but the long distance taxi charge based on per person per trip.

If you are satisfied with driving Kancil, it's cheaper to just rent a kancil from the airport and drive to Mt. Kinabalu, instead of using a taxi.

Yes, I agree with Din. rent a car could be better because we have no limit time to explore that area. I just back from Kinabalu and we are traveling with family but because of the limit time then I got tour to that area.I recommended Mountain Garden with a lot of flora and fauna very exciting and view on the Nabalu market is really great. For your info, I got price from the hotel tour for rental car is quite expensive about 400 RM for 8 hours with driver.
Don't forget with the islands, there are great place to visit too. The wet market,the Filipino chicken wing. I enjoyed much holiday in Kinabalu

Travel Tips for Kota Kinabalu

Central Market

by Willettsworld

The Central Market is located near the waterfront, just to the north of the Filipino market and doubles as an outdoor food court. The market sells fruit and vegetables along with meat and fish. We visited it at night after having a pizza at Little Italy.

Diving in Sapi

by drgdg

Took scuba diving lessons in KK and it was held at Sapi Island. We spotted 2 turtles! that really made our day!

Snorkelling at the island is also great. Lots of marine life even near shore. Fishes can be abit aggressive.

Buy Crystal or Pearl Accessories in KK

by RINNAZ about Filipino Market (Art Market)

Buy crystal or pearl accessories like bracelets, brooch, necklace or even local craft or souvenirs here. I have plenty of crystal collection now. They are very cheap compared to KL. Don't forget to bargain to get better deal. Crystal or pearl accessories, t-shirts and local crafts. Depends on your bargaining skills.

Liveband@Sutra Harbour

by savitha about Liveband@Sutra Harbour

Sutra Harbour is probably the best place and most strategic hotel in KK...It faces the sea and is close to town and offers spectacular service and ambience...

If you want to escape the high-riding night life (i.e. Shenanigans ) and want something a bit laid back, do check out the hotel lounge area where you can find a small ensemble playing every night...They play a bit of oldies and some up-to-date music...

You get to enjoy the music, have a good cuppa coffee and a nice couch to sit! Casual will do..I didn't even bring jeans this time round..I just entered with my 3/4 khakis and t-shirt and my TEVAs!

So, there you go!
Thats the dress code!
