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 ?

I am travelling to Penang on a business trip the first two weeks in Jan and unfortunately I only have one weekend free. Although I would love to explore Borneo, given the time I would like to atleast see Sepilok and Labuk Sanctuary. Is this too aggressive, flying in from Penang on Friday, and leaving on Sunday?
Hello, my family is going to Malaysia in January. We are family of 7. 1. I'd like to know if there is a direct bus or van from KK airport to Ranau(Mount kinabalu heritage resort). I know that there are some buses from KK, but not sure about the ones from KK airport. 2. Anybody knows where exactly sabah tea garden is in Ranau? We're going to move from Mount kinabalu heritage resort to sabah tea garden. Both are in Ranau. How can I go from the resort to the garden? Are there any local buses? We don't want to take a taxi. Thank you for reading.
Hi all, 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? Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks! Natalie
Hi, friends.. 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..! ERY

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

Buses from Tawau to KK cost about RM70plus but they leave only in the evening and takes 8 hrs. Any idea how much it would cost for a private taxi/bus/car for 3 people? Would it be faster also? I emailed some travel operators but no response from them. Any contacts?
This year I am planning a trip to Borneo with my family. We will travel for 3 weeks - 2 weeks backpacking and last week we plan to relax on the beaches near KK and eventually visit some places good for the kids (my girl is 8). For sure we will not just sunbath, but we want to take a rent-a-car and drive around to explore this part of Sabah. I would appreciate some advises where to go, what to see. any recommendation for reasonably priced beach hotel? thanks jure
We are planning a stay in Sukau later this month. Appreciate if anyone can advise the local transport that is available from Sukau to Sandakan.
