Hi! I am writing a few articles about Kota Kinabalu and I will travel there in January. Anyone who knows special, interesting or nice companies, places or people I should visit? Thanks!
We like to eat locally when travelling. Can we bring beer and wine to local restarants and if licensed are the prices of beer and wine western?
I am aware that some are Muslim so no alcohol applies bt what about the Chinese Malay and Indian restauranta?
We are a couple in early 50s and like local travel experiences.
Wanted: 3-4 star clean hotel. Must have nice pool and breakfast and within walking distance of local eateries.
Not Wanted: 5 star western luxury, shopping malls and western restarants
Something like Grand Margherita Kuching
My husband and I are staying at the Hyatt Hotel in KK over New Year and want to know what celebrations will be happening and can we book in for a special dinner somewhere?
We have just arrived in KK and are looking to hire a car for around 3 days (without a driver).
Although we have seen plenty of agencies and car hire companies, I was hoping for a recommendation from someone that has actually used a rental company and was happy with the service and cost. (We have run into issues such as being overcharged for petrol or hugely inflated prices to repair scratches that were there in the first place or made by another person/car when the vehicle was parked.)
Many thanks in advance.
which is the best way to travel...rent car with driver or drive by our own?
Planning a visit for July 2014.
any major problem with time of year to climb, eg trips cancelled because blah blah blah,
where do I start? does one need to prebook if so how.
any tips on tour guides and ways to avoid inflated tourist prices.
we plan for 3 weeks in Sabah so any tips on must see and best way to go about it are gratefully read.
Look forward to hearing replys.
I will not be making reservations but arriving Saturday morning by bus from KK airport. What's my best bet for a CLEAN, QUIET cheap room for two that is relatively safe without bedbugs, roaches, etc and reasonably accomodating staff?
Arriving midnight, where can I exchange dollars for Ringgitt? I hate using atms, but will do in an emergency, Are there reliable atm machines cirrus that connect to usa banks without big service charges at airport?
What activities can the tourists participate with the local natives?
Hi , im travelling alone to KK next week. can anyone acompany me? do any single travellers around there?

Myself and partner (wife when travelling) are trying to plan an itinerary and want to find out about the kinda of stuff that isn't in the tour guides (markets festivals etc.) as well as your personal recommendations.
In KK we will be staying in the Tajung Aru 22nd - early morning 26th. Any recommendations for these dates please help out.
Cheers and thank-you in advance!
I'm currently in Kota Kinabalu, I came here for some island/beach action. Its raining and forecast to carry on for a while didnt check. I'm approaching the end of my trip and I just want to lounge around on beaches and party in the evenings. I've stayed in mostly Thailand and never touched the north like Cambodia.
I have to fly back on the 23rd of May at the latest, I have no flight booked, I ideally want to fly back to London from Bangkok or Singapore.
Where are the awesome beaches and good night life?
What you guys reckon ?
Hi all...my friends and I planning to go to Bali this coming October for 3 days 2 night. can you guys suggest any budget and safe place to stay? there will be 9 of us fly from Kota Kinabalu...
What sort of price should I be prepared to pay for a taxi from KK to Nexus resort?
I'm just found out that the hotel we're staying in in KK does not enforce the NYE dinner as I first thought.
Do you have any suggestions as to what we should do? It will be me and my dad (62 and 32) and we won't want to go and get"£^ but will want to drink and have fun, perhaps dinner. Should we just stay at the hotel (Magellan Sutera) who are hosting dinners, or go somewhere else?
I am going to KK for 3D/3N only in this Sept 29 - Oct 2, 2012.
Would need help on the most suitable itineary for such short time (in details if possible).
Kindly point out the main attraction / spot and the 'must do' or 'must try - food' in KK.
I supposed to be traveling with a friend but ended up going alone; it is safe for female to travel alone in KK, right?
Also, any recommendation on where to stay? Affordable place but nice and easily accessible? I would really love to be able to stroll around on foot if possible.
Thank you very much & cheers..!
Hi, anyone know if it's more worth it to book tour package on net behorehand or more suitable to buy package in the centre while we're at KK?
Besides, what's the taxi rate from kkia to jesselton point?
If I book room at gayana eco resort, where should I head to when I reach jesselton point?
Any suggestions for evening meals in KK? Advice welcome, cheers, J
We are in Kota Kinabalu in July and are doing mount trekking tour, and have a few days. Any suggestions what other tours or other activities we can join ?
Hi, I'm a student visiting KK, Sabha, for a week this month. I want to know how much one needs for food per day. I would prefer the cheapest option, but definitely of reasonable quality? Fast food joints and roadside shops are my favorites. But, I've never been to this part of the world. So, I could use some advice. Would 5-10 dollars be enough for a day for food alone?
I am travelling from England to Malaysia, where is the best place to change up my currency into Ringgit? Does anybpdy know somewhere where they don't charge any extra commision to exchange the money and they only give you the money you put in to change up?
We will be staying in KK for several days in June/July & have given up on the overnight climb up Mount Kinabalu as it seems to need to be booked months in advance as well as sounding very pricey. Would walks in and around the Park as day trips from KK be feasible? Either busing it or possibly renting a car? Or would we be better off, does anyone think, staying over night for a night or two nearer the Park for walking & trekking? Advice welcome. J
Im planning to go in KK this coming May
I want to stay in resort? Is it possible, any suggestion?
any itinerary can you suggest for 4D/3N stay.. thanks
I'm due to fly in few days to KK, I was wandering if could I have the chance to get into a tour operator agency and have the possibility to join a climbing group going to Mt Kinabalu no more than 2 days after. Anyone experienced this sort of booking? I had a look at Sutera website but seems obviously fully booked and I didn't plan to be in Borneo so early..
i was wondering if you can advise on transport options to kinabalu park hq if we arrive at the airport in the evening.
we are hoping for public transport as we need to keep cost down. any advise will be greatly appreciated!
We are trying to make the booking for 2d/1n but it is fully booked.
Is there a one day trip package to the summit of mt Kinabalu?
Which means we hike up to the summit and come down on the same day.
Pls advise and have a great day everyone !!!!
