Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Kota Kinabalu

Experience the frontier charm of Kota Kinabalu, the capital city of Sabah, sandwiched between palm oil plantations and the sultry South China Sea. If arriving early, why not venture to the Sabah Museum and check out the impressive collection of tribal artefacts on display.

Day 2 Dusun Village

Learn about the spiritual, economic and social ties that the locals have with the imposing Mt Kinabalu during a village homestay.

Days 3-4 Mt Kinabalu

Fuelled by fresh mountain air and stunning views, set off on an energetic Mt Kinabalu climb. It's a challenging ascent but there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy Kinabalu's remarkable flora and fauna along the way.

Days 5-6 Poring Hot Springs

Wake early to catch sunrise at the summit of Mt Kinabalu - admire the jungles of Borneo in one direction and the South China Sea in the other. Enjoy a well-deserved soak in the Japanese-style Poring Hot Springs - believed to have healing properties for the skin.

Day 7 Kinabatangan Jungle Camp

Travel into the steamy rainforest of Kinabatangan. Learn how the locals contribute to the region’s conservation at MESCOT, a project that provides villagers with environmental education. Explore the jungle by boat and spend the night in huts amid wild orangutans, hornbills and macaques.

Pass by fishing villages on a speedboat ride to Turtle Island. Be touched by the sight of giant green turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs.

Day 10 Sepilok Orangutan Reserve

The soulful eyes of Borneo's famous creatures will melt hearts on a visit to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. Learn about conservation on an optional tour of the Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC) or check out the cheeky proboscis monkeys at a sanctuary in Labuk Bay.
