Warmest greetings at Kota Kinabalu Airport! Transfer to Kota Kinabalu city hotel.
After checking in to hotel, feel free to explore and enjoy the small rustic city and nightlife.
At 4.45PM, transfer to Sutera Marina Jetty for the North Borneo Cruises - Sunset Dinner Cruise experience! Your evening unfolds along the sultry sun-tinged South China Sea, cruising pass the islands and water villages that dot Sabah’s west coast.
You are free to wander around the vessel. Panoramic ocean views, warmth of the setting sun and gentle sea breeze grace the upper-deck while a live band serenades the ethnic themed air-conditioned restaurant below with acoustic favorites.
Dinner will be served buffet style. Time to sink your teeth into Sabah’s most sought after culinary experience. As the sun sets and the stars come out, Kota Kinabalu’s coastline now comes alive with dazzling city night lights. The North Borneo Cruises will glide across the Waterfront as you indulge in dessert or your next glass of wine.
You will disembark from the cruise at the Sutera Marina Jetty and transfer back to the hotel.
Overnight at The Luma Hotel.
Upon pick up from the hotel lobby, you will be whooshed straight into Sabah's lush countryside. The first stop will be Tamparuli Town for a walk on the famous “Jambatan Tamparuli” suspension bridge and soak up the small-town charm.
The next stop will be at the Nabalu Handicraft Market. Nabalu is a rustic point perched on the hillside, where the local natives gather to sell local produce, fruits, homegrown vegetables and handicraft souvenirs.
Enjoy lunch at the local restaurant.
Your next agenda will be visiting Desa Cow Farm. When you see the roads grow narrow along the way and the landscape gives your rear-view mirror licks of fresh green sceneries, the 199-hectare stretch of pristine farmland on the foothills of Mount Kinabalu means you have reached the Desa Cattle Farm!
Cattle graze the green valley pastures to provide nearly one million litres of mountain-fresh milk annually, all while travellers both near and far enjoy the outrageously scenic view that plays the backdrop to this dairy farm. You can get close to the cattle, bottle feed the calves, and enjoy fresh milk or yoghurt produced straight off the farm.
Then, transfer to Kundasang and check into a mountain resort. You will notice the change in air temperature at this elevated level.
You are free to explore the resort at leisure. Dinner and overnight stay at the mountain resort.
On your third day, you will wake up to a misty morning ushering in views of sun-draped Mount Kinabalu. Birds chirp away while low-hanging clouds blanket the valleys.
The first stop for the day will be the Poring Hot Springs with an immersive exploration of Mount Kinabalu's treetops. The Canopy Treetop Walk invites you to witness the grandeur of a hundred million years old rainforest from a 175m length walkway suspended 60 meters above lush jungly tangles. Take in the sights and sounds and discover unique rainforest creatures from a bird's eye view. A 20 minutes hike is needed to reach the Canopy Walkway.
Then, it's time for a soothing sulphur bath in the Japanese-styled open-air tubs! Dip in the all-natural mineral-rich hot springs water, surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens. There is also a cold water pool nearby for those who prefer a cold dip.
Enjoy lunch at the local restaurant.
Next up on the day's agenda is the visit to Malaysia's first-ever UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kinabalu National Park. Set at 1,500m above sea level, this 754sq kilometre park features one the tallest mountains in all of South East Asia as its centrepiece—Mount Kinabalu. Rising at 4,095.2m with cloud-hugging peaks that shade the valleys below, the majestic mountain is certainly a sight to behold from Kinabalu National Park.
Enjoy the refreshing and cooling air as you proceed for a guided walk along the nature trails in the Botanical Garden and learn more about Kinabalu Park's biological treasure trove.
Afterwards, depart to Kota Kinabalu city, where we will drop you off at your hotel.
