Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival in Kota Kinabalu

Day 1

Arrival in Kota Kinabalu

On the first day you will be picked up from the airport and transferred the 20 minutes drive to your hotel located right in the heart of the bustling city of Kota Kinabalu. Your comfortable hotel has a colonial style and is located within walking distance or a short taxi ride away from the city sights. It also has a great selection of local restaurants nearby offering many of the local delicacies that Malaysia is famous for including their delicious curries.


Day 2

Kinabalu National Park

In the morning there will be a breakfast buffet waiting for you before you head to Kinabalu National Park. On your way you will stop at Nabalu village and get to taste some of the local fruits. When you arrive at the National Park, you will brave the heights of the rainforest’s canopy walkway 100 feet above the forest floor. Take the time to visit the butterfly garden, and perhaps take a dip in one of the hot mineral springs set in beautifully landscaped gardens. During the tour you’ll explore the World Heritage site of Kinabalu National Park with your guide.
