Do you know that 2007 is the Visit Malaysia year? Basically, this is the year where a lot of tourist/travelers from around the world come and spend some time (and some money) by coming and experience what they say as “Malaysia Truly Asia”.
So if you decided to come and spend some time in Sabah, and maybe climb Mount Kinabalu, you better book the place early. I would suggest 3-6 months in advance. Otherwise, the accommodation will be packed up.
