An intriguing city between the Borneo jungle and the South China Sea, Kota Kinabalu has a charm that can only be found in a frontier town.
The Dusun people are wonderfully warm and friendly - experience their traditional way of life at a picturesque village nestled in the shadow of Mt Kinabalu.
Featuring beautiful nature trails and diverse flora and fauna, Kinabalu National Park encompasses the lowland tropical forest surrounding the imposing peak of Mt Kinabalu.
Warm sulphur water is piped into several open-air Japanese-style baths at Poring Hot Springs, which are said to have curative properties for the skin.
Located in a small village on the Kinabatangan River, our hosts are the local ecological organisation, MESCOT, whose aim is to provide villagers with environmental education.
The busy city of Sandakan has a strong Cantonese influence which is evident in the lively harbourside market, the many Chinese temples and the local cuisine.
Swim, snorkel or laze about on the idyllic Turtle Island, where green turtles come ashore to lay their eggs every night of the year.
Set in lush tropical rainforest, the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre was established to prepare domesticated or orphaned orangutans to return to the wild.
