A tour Adventure at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

The harbor...

Well, just a sharing of my trip at Kota Kinabalu. This time round, not the luxury living style. Check out my previous Sabah luxury trip:


I’ll be back! As quoted the same statement of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This time round, I had arranged a tour package as strongly recommended my beautiful friend, Melissa Alut Lim, and here is the itinerary during my stay in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Itinerary as follows:

3rd November 2012

Pick up from your hotel and proceed to Jesselton Point Terminal, the usual ferry stop for us to travel to our preferred island.

Jesselton Point Terminal

Upon arrival at the Manukan island, proceed for registration at the Sabah Park's and make payment for the conservation fee.

Manukan Island, here we are!

Swim, snorkel, sun bathe, stroll along the white sandy beach or explore the lowland forest – the choice is yours! Time we spend on that day was 3-4 hours.

Manukan island

Being the most developed island, Manukan Island offers nature trails, restaurant and several air-conditioned challets. This boomerang shaped island has a good coral reefs fringing the island gives you opportunity to explore the underwater haven.

At least, I managed to go for a short hiking trip to check out their sunset point of Manukan island.

Feel like I am back to nature...just nice to have a tree like a main entrance...

beautiful view of the sea
Found something creepy during the hiking trip! See the video >.<

04th November 2012

Pick up from the hotel in the early morning and proceed to Gaya Street Market. I did blogged about it during my first trip about Gaya street market: http://jesonestop.blogspot.com/2011/08/travel-journey-to-kota-kinabalu-sabah.html. Free at leisure at Gaya Street Market.
Then, we proceed for Kota Kinabalu City Tour. Highlights of this City tour includes view of:

  • the Menara Tun Mustapha (formerly known as Sabah Foundation Building) ~ a unique 32 storey building with no pillars, one of the few hanging structure in the world, 
Menara Tun Mustapha

Orang Utan
  • The Puh Toh Tze (Chinese Buddhist temple) with a huge status of Kuan Yin (her goddess of mercy),
temple, peaceful as it always used to be...

huge statue...who?

atkinson clock tower
  • Signal Hill, the highest point to capture the wide view of the whole city.
