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.
Kinabalu National Park

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.
