    First time i went there, that place gave me a shock… It is so heavenly and i’m speechless. What a beauty and a splendid art that Allah had created. I wish that they have chalet to stay in…

  2. drizad

    I heard that they are going to build some chalet and maybe a longhouse there for visitors to stay. But I don’t know when will it be ready.

    It is so beautiful. How may a family of four travel from KK to the Tip? And where to stay? Any suggestions, anyone? How long is the journey from KK to the Tip?

    Yes Kuan, it is beautiful. The trip to the Tip of Borneo (above) is included in the Rungus Bavangazo Longhouse Maranjak Homestay. I have emailed you on the quotation.
    Journey from Kota Kinabalu will take approximately 2.5 to 3 hours.

    Hello Drizad,

    Where is Tanjong Simpang Mengayau? Seems like a new place for me that never visited before, I like the last picture that show how natural paint a good picture for us.

    It’s in Kudat, the northern most part of Borneo. That is why they call it “The Tip of Borneo”. It’s like a paradise…

    Personally, It’s better that authorities don’t start building chalets or hotels there. It’s best preserved that way. All of us know what are the effects of commercialization to such heavenly place..

    From what I heard from my father-in-law, there WILL be some development there. He even have a piece of land there, where he would want to build another Rungus Longhouse Homestay for travelers. He does not have the capital yet, he said. He DID asked me if I could find investors for the project…

    But, I am not sure about hotels and chalets. I guess, it’s inevitable…

    Nice photo you got there drizad…I’m a bit ashamed that I never put Simpang Mengayau photo in my blog yet even though I’m a Rungus that is staying in Kudat…anyway, I agree wit Kay that they mustn’t do too much development there..the natural habitat will be disturb if they gonna built chalet there…I think a Homestay program is better and yes, Rungus longhouse is the main idea…drizad, I seconded you father -in-law effort here..anyway, who is your father-in-law? maybe I’ve heard of him…I can ask my father if I don’t know because my father is from that area (Suangpai, nearby village to Tiga Papan)..once again, great photo…

    aryst – My father in law is Momili Milaad, in Kg. Tinagol. Maranjak Milaad, his brother, is the one who runs Maranjak Homestay Bavanggazo Longhouse in Kg. Bavanggazo.

    It’s nice to have a place like Simpang Mengayau…

    Thank drizad for the info…yes, I heard of them and if I’m not mistaken, they are my uncle (but never knew them well) and that mean, your wife is my cousin and you are my brother-in-law…it is funny that I knew someone related to me by Internet…Kay is also related to me…well, keep on blogging man…

    We were in Kudat a few years ago and had wanted to go to Simpang Mengayau but because I wasn’t sure what was there, I couldn’t convince my husband to make the drive. Maybe when I show him these lovely pictures, we will make the trip over again one day.

    Well, it is really a good place! I just visited this place on last month. Although I am a local people but left for overseas studies for more than 20 years. I missed the place so much! Hope it will attract more and more tourist in the future!

    Saya pertama kali ke Simpang Mengayau bermalam di Tip Of borneo Resort ( Mr .Tommy ) , kali kedua saya bermalam di Tip Of Borneo Beach Lodge ( Pn. Rozita – Kalau saya tak silap ) dan yang terakhir kat Tip Of Borneo Chelet ( Mr James / Puan Betty ) ketiga tiga tempat tinggal memuaskan , Restoran kat Tip Of borneo ( DiUsahakan oleh Mr James Family ) tumb up .. memenehui selera dan harga berpatutan , pekerjanya mesra dan berbudi bahasa .. satu yang tak dapat di lupakan setelah di hidangkan makanan yang di pesan mereka akan kata : SELAMAT MENJAMU SELERA … jarang di jumpa di restoran kat bandar atau pekan.. saya hanya nak komen tentang jalan raya utama nak menuju ke Tanjung Simpang Mengayau .. dari KK terus kesana kita akan melalui jalan batu kasiran sejauh lebih kurang 5 KM , memandangkan kawasan ini adalah tumpuan pelancungan maka di harapkan pihak kerajaan Sabah mmengaspal jalan raya ini
    Saya cadangkan jika nak selesa kita gunakan jalan di simpang tiga papan ..jalannya agak baik … insyallah saya akan kesana lagi

    Adun N2 Tg Kapur dan MP Kudat .. minta lah kerajaan Sabah dan kerajaan persekutuan mengaspal Jalan Raya ke Simpang mengayau yang masih dalam keadaan batu kasiran tu … Simpang mengayau adalah pusat pelancungan ..tak kita sedari rupanya ada lagi Kudat Riviver di Kawasan Pantai Kelambu ..tapi jalannya pun masih batu kasiran .. 3 kali ku kesana yang ku lihat bukan saja [pelancung tempatan yang datang tapi dari luar negara pun ada .. naik tarafkan lah jalan ke simpang mengayau tu

  24. Osman Sakir

    Adakah anda perasaan di kawasan Tanjung Simpang Mengayau ada Unit Keselamatan ditugaskan ??? ia iti PGA .. tu lah ku rasa selamat bila berada disana tapi ku lihat keadaan bangunan tempat mereka bertugas tu amat menyedihkan … adalah di harapkan pihak Kerajaan dapat memperbaiki keadaan rumah / tempat tugas pasukan ni … beri lah keselesaan kepada petugas petugas PGA di sana ..perbaiki bangunan mereka tu
