On the northern tip of the island of Borneo sits Sabah, a natural paradise with mountainous appeal. Literally, its famous Mt Kinabalu reaches over 4,000 metres above sea-level! The rest of Sabah – over 55% of it – is covered in stunning rainforest that accommodates the legendary orangutans and playful sun bears.
Kota Kinabalu, Sabah’s capital city is just a 2.5-hour flight from nearby Kuala Lumpur. The city itself offers delectable eateries and cultural adventures for those looking to trade nature for something a bit more urban. But with glowing cave systems, awe-inspiring viewpoints and cuddly wildlife, Sabah is the perfect destination for families looking to dive head first into nature’s beauty.
