Kota Kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

We planned this trip months in advance and primarily had interests in the Orangutan Rehabilitation Center. Little did we know, we were about to embark on a beautiful country filled with wonderful people, delicious food, prestine landscapes and mountainous challenges.

We arrived into a humid Kota Kinabalu. We walked the local streets to get our first taste of a confronting culture. To me, the streets and smells were very simlar to China town in Australia. Except the people seemed to be very laid back, enjoying their food and karaoke! This made me feel quite comfortable. Chris, however, was taken back by it all. But after settling in, and visitng a close friend of mine at a 5star resort (which was a few stars higher than what we were staying in), he felt better. We all enjoyed our dinner by the waterfront and it was great to catch up with friends in a different part of the world.

At the end of the day, we were very much looking forward to the next and meeting our fellow Intrepid travellers.
