Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Kota Kinabalu
As your flight descends into Kota Kinabalu, you’ll spot the famous backdrop of this city, the mighty Mount Kinabalu. On arrival, our driver will be waiting to transfer you and your family to your nearby hotel. Once you’ve freshened up, you can walk down to the waterfront where you can grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants here. We suggest getting there before sunset, as the view of the sun setting across the bay are pretty spectacular.
Visiting Kinabalu National Park
This morning you’ll be heading out to the nearby Kinabalu National Park with a local guide. You’ll have the chance to pick up some snacks from a traditional village before heading into the depths of the park. Then it’s time to take on the canopy walk (100m high) and enjoy the spectacular views of the forest below. If that’s enough adventure for you, you can spend the rest of the day enjoying the mineral hot springs and the tranquil butterfly garden before heading back into the city.
Departure from Kota Kinabalu
Your time in Kota Kinabalu has come to an end, and it’s time to explore the rest of Sabah. From here you can visit Sepilok to see what’s arguably Borneo’s biggest draw, the orangutans. You can also sail down the Kinabatangan River or go wildlife spotting in Tabin Wildlife Reserve. There’s a wealth of family adventures to choose from in Sabah.
