Kinabalu Park And Mount Kinabalu
The journey by road to the Kinabalu Park takes some 11 and half hours. It is a natural haven for a variety of plant and animal species and a must for nature lovers. The mighty Mount Kinabalu at 4095.2 meters is within the park. This is the biggest tourist attraction in Sabah, luring flocks of mountaineers to scale to the summit. There is a thermal —pool system at Poring Hot Springs to offer a Japanese- style hot spring bath in the open air.
Situated at 32 km south of Sandakan, the marvelous Gomantong Caves are the home to hundreds of thousands of swifts. They build their nests high on cave walls and roofs. Twice a year, nest collectors come to the caves and climb on tall bamboo poles to collect the nests, which are considered a delicacy. Besides swifts, the caves are also inhabited by millions of bats, which have become a spectacular sight to many tourists.
Mengkabong Water Village
about some half an hour drive from Kota Kinabalu, is the famous Mengkabong Water Village where houses are built on stilt and linked by a maze of rickety plankwalks. An ever increasing population has seen the water village gradually expanding into the sea.
