Trek through forests where elephants and orangutans run wild or climb to the top of one of Asia’s highest mountains when you visit this appealing region in Malaysia. Situated on Borneo’s northern coast, Sabah is known as ‘The Land Beneath the Wind’ due to its location just below the typhoon zone. In recent years, the state has made a name for itself as an outdoor enthusiasts’ paradise and offers a seemingly endless number of ways to experience the tropical wilderness.
Many head straight for spectacular Mount Kinabalu, which reaches 13,435 feet (4,095 meters) above sea level. Despite its height, it is a reasonably straightforward climb, but you are required to hire a guide to accompany you.
If you are a keen diver, explore the spectacular marine life found around the islands of Sipadan and Mabul. Animal lovers will relish the chance of a close-up encounter with an orangutan at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center. The center is located on 16.6 square miles (43 square kilometers) of protected land at the edge of Kabili Sepilok Forest Reserve and is home to up to 80 orangutans roaming free in the reserve.
Several conservation areas offer more opportunities to enjoy the natural habitat. Take the canopy walk through the trees in the Danum Valley or cruise down the Kinabatangan River and look out for the native proboscis monkeys.
Reach Sabah by flying into the capital city, Kota Kinabalu. From here, a network of buses connects all of East Malaysia’s major cities. Internal flights are an option too, if you don’t fancy the long drive on less than perfect roads. Make sure you plan ahead before visiting Sabah because they have strict entry requirements. Organize all necessary visas and book your accommodation in advance because this can save you a lot of time.
Sabah has an equatorial climate, with year-round warm weather. October to February can be slightly wetter, while March and April are the best months to climb Mount Kinabalu and enjoy crystal-clear, panoramic views.
This property is beautiful. It took a over an hour to get a spa me it sent to the room which was a little frustrating and the shower stall is very small...standing in the middle I looked up to the water to rinse my face and banged my head on a corner of the wall behind me. Very weird placement and ...
The toilet wasn't cleaned properly. There were no toothbrush and bathrobe which I had to call to request and waited quite awhile. The TV wasn't working.
