Between Islands and Mountains

I'm just want to share story/pics/cost bout my vacation with 2 friends at Sabah(Kota Kinabalu, Pulau Manukan & Pulau Sapi, Kinabalu Park and Kundasang War Memorial).

Day 1: Shah Alam - Kota Kinabalu
Took a KTM's train from Padang Jawa Station to KL Sentral , then took KLIA Transit to LCCT and depart to Kota Kinabalu International Terminal (Terminal 2 for Air Asia) at 5.15 pm .After 2 hours and 30 minutes we are landed. Then took a taxi(cost about RM50 per car) from KKIA to Tune Hotels(1Borneo) for check-in. No activity for this day but we went to IBorneo looking for a dinner.

For sleep and rest 

Day 2: Sapi Island and Manukan Island 
Took a shuttle bus from 1Borneo to Warisan Square(free shuttle-start 9 am), then went to Jesselton Point(boat and ferry terminal) but we were went half of it coz, there a "prebet boat" offered to take us to Sapi Island and Manukan Island (I think we been cheated) huhu. Then we spent about 3 hours at Sapi Island and 2 hours at Manukan Island (at this point did not care bout sun burn). Done with islands, we're head back to mainland for "lunch" at Suria Sabah and off to hotel for resting and planning activity for the next day(calling out all possible rent car' owner but end with nothing  ).

Day 3: Kinabalu Park and Kundasang War Memorial
Got a SMS early morning from rent car's owner that didn't picked my phone call, and surprisingly he has a car(VIVA) and it's cheap(lucky enough). So, off to Kinabalu Park at 11 am and took about 2 hrs include with stupid fined from police traffic Tuaran. Ridiculous fined which us been fined because of using sun shade, seriously sun shade? which is I never heard before. But all the boosting mad at the police Tuaran being cooling down by the Mount Kinabalu breath taking view, cool's air at Kinabalu Park and beautiful Kundasang War Memorial. After spending a few hours there, we're head back to Kota Kinabalu and went straight to Tanjung Aru to watch sunset. Done with the sunset, off to Filipino market for dinner and did some shopping. Then off to hotel for resting.

Day 4: End of Borneo Journey Part 1 - Kuala Lumpur
Breakfast at KK, adding more souvenirs and off to KKIA's Terminal 2 . Bye Borneo will meet you again. 

Cost for this trip about RM430++ include flight ticket, hotel, foods(breakfast,lunch,dinner, supper, snack), fees (boat,entering fee), transportation and souvenirs.
