First of all, I would like to thank Ruhaizad for inviting me to become the first guest blogger in his Kinabalu Blog. I am honoured that he thought about me when he wanted to initiate this guest blogger in his blog. Most of you may not know that I have actually won a quiz about Mount Kinabalu some months back. In fact I just wanted to try my luck and little that I know I managed to win it.
I enjoyed reading this blog as it gives many information about Mount Kinabalu which you can’t find anywhere else. Anyway, I am invited to talk about travel places from anywhere in the world, however I shall start by promoting Sabah’s travel destinations.
If you do not know, Sabah has one of the most beautiful sunset. Most of the time, you can enjoy a beautiful sunset from any shores of Sabah. I would of course recommend you Tanjung Aru Beach as well as the beaches along Nexus Karambunai and Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort. Apart from the beaches, you can also enjoy a good sunset at other locations like in the Kota Kinabalu City Centre as shown in the photo below.
Another local attraction that most people have yet to visit is the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park.
Lok Kawi Wildlife Park is located about 15 kilometres from the city centre and would take you about 20 minutes to drive there. It is along the Old Penampang-Papar Road. The wildlife park was recently opened to the public and features animals like tigers, elephants, sun bear, orang utan and many more.
Ideally, you would need to spend about two hours at the park if you take your time to enjoy the wildlife. Either an early morning or a late afternoon would be best as it won’t be too hot. The park opens daily from 9am until 5.30pm.
The park usually attracts quite a bit of crowd during weekends as you can see parents bring their children as well as tourists. On weekends the park also offers elephant rides and other activities.
