Your holiday to Sabah could include a visit to the thriving metropolis of Kota Kinabalu, the capital of the state of Sabah; a visit to the Kinabalu National Park area around the highest mountain in South-East Asia – Mt Kinabalu which soars to an elevation of nearly 4100 metres; or you can opt for the Mount Kinabalu summit trek – a two day trek to the summit of this imposing mountain; or a head over to the Sandakan region on the Eastern side of Sabah to enjoy the rainforests and endemic wildlife to be found along the Kinabatangan River in the Sukau area, Tabin Wildlife Reserve or Borneo Rainforest Lodge in Danum Valley.
Lovers of scuba diving can enjoy the marine life of the bucket list destination of Pulau Sipadan (Sipadan Island) located off the coast of Sabah near Semporna. Idyllic dive resorts such as Kapalai Dive Resort, and Sipadan Water Village located on Mabul Island are beckoning. Alternatively, head out to Pulau Lankayan (Lankayan Island) off the coast of Sandakan, or you might like to try the diving in and around the islands off the coast of Kota Kinabalu in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. If you have always thought about getting your PADI dive certification or SSI Dive certification, consider doing the course in Kota Kinabalu then moving on to one of the fabulous dive resorts on the Eastern side of Sabah to use your new found abilities.
Treks in Sabah can take you to the heights of Mount Kinabalu, or the “Lost World” of the Maliau Basin.
