Combined visit of Kinabalu Perk and Sandakan

by Horlent

From 5 to 10 Mai i will sepnd holiday in Kota Kinabalu with my wife. I will get a rent a car with GPS.
Is it a good idea ta combine a visit to Kinabalu Park and continue to Sandankan to visit Sepilok Orang Utan Center or/and Sukau Rain Forest Lodge.
Which trail in Kinabalu Park has to be visited? (we will not climb Mount Kinabalu). We love nature. Which trail has to be visited? From our visits to Japan we already experienced hot baths, so Poring Hot Spring will be not visited just eventually trails. We will start early morning. Where to sleep? How long from Kinabalu Park to Sepilok or Sukau? In this Forum some are giving priority to Sukau in respect to Sepilok.

Poring Hot Springs - I would give it a miss. They were hardly intimate just a lot of small tubs clustered under a canopy. We spent too little time do to more than a very short walk in Kinubalu Park, including the canopy walk. That was not too exciting as it was not above the canopy - really quite low.

Sepilok - is not far from Sandakan. We did it in the morning and went to Sukau in the early afternoon. Driving to Sukau? I don't think so - we got there by boat from the harbour - close to three hours. Both are worth it, but in different ways.

I recomment you to stay at a lodge which is not very far from National Park. D'villa lodge is a nice place to stay and is not expensive. You can find them at . I am not the owner and I just want to recommend you from my previous experience. From Kinabalu Park to Sandakan will take approximately 5 hours depending on how you drive and road conditions.

Travel Tips for Kota Kinabalu

Intruder - me or something else?

by Herbert999

Sabah is definitely famous for wild life. What else could you say when you saw this walking slowly on the beach, and you were just sitting on the same beach enjoying sea breeze? (It's about half meter long from head to tail)

always remember the sunscreen

by nezz

You must leave enough room to fill with all your shopping great exchange rate means good buys Always remember some comfy shoes or sandals for walking especially if you have large feet. The largest sized shoes for women are size 8 (Australia) a 38 or 39 European. Not much large sized women's clothing you really have to hunt it out, so bring enough from home Sunscreen is very expensive and remember the tropical strength rid or areoguard repellant. otherwise all other toiletries are super cheap just stock up at the supermarkets. Basic medicines are cheap from the pharmacies but you'll need to know what to ask for. I always bring the basics like dressings, antibiotics, pain killers. Bring a good camera for all the wonderful sunsets If you love your wine bring a cask with you as wine is very expensive. You are allowed 1 litre per adult into Malaysia so a 2L cask per couple is ok...Local spirits & beer although not cheap by Malaysian standards are reasonable if you stock up your hotel fridge from the supermarket in the basement of KK plaza.

Monsopiad Cultural Village

by pepemorris11

Take no 13 bus to Donggongon town in Penampang from bus stations in front of City Hall or Wawasan Plaza in KK city.Fare per person MR$1.60. From Donggongon, ask for minibus bound for Terawi and inform driver that you wish to get off at the cultural village. minibus will stop you at the doorstep of the village. Bus fare from Donggongon to village MR$1.70. When getting back to KK city, cross the road and wait for the minibus back to Donggongon. It would be better to walk a little further down the road from the village to the bus shelter. Read my tip on tourist trap. worth visiting if you are not a local and if you are interested in Kadazan culture

Nabalu Village

by yipsufen

On your way to Poring Hotspring or Kinabalu Park, you will pass by a very small village called Nabalu. Tourists will usually stop here for their breakfast meal, pee-stop & also to do some souvenir shopping. It's only a row of shops & a stretch of souvenir stalls. At the end of the souvenir stalls, is a watch tower. The tower is old & making creeching sound as you walk up the steps. It serves as an elevated platform for you to view the surrounding Kinabalu mountain range.

There's many variety of local souvenirs, handicrafts or products sold here, like Batik, Malay cloth & wood carving. In terms of breakfast, the choice is limited & quality so so.

Sinsuran Complex

by yuet29

There are night market near the sinsuran complez where is just like night market you find in any part of malaysia- selling fake branded watches, shoes, clothes, and some funny thing that you wont get in any of the big supermarket. Price can be bargained.
