Each time I am on social media these days – especially Instagram and Facebook, I see pictures of holidays everywhere. Beach, sand, blue sky, coconut and palm trees…Everything breathes holidays. So here is my contribution to feed the trends: a sneak peek into Borneo Island! Here are my top 3 must-do and see in the Sabah region capital, Kota Kinabalu or KK, with your squad:
–Visiting the islands
Borneo is really about islands and gorgeous beaches! Head to Jesselton Ferry port and choose where to go. We tried the three best ones: Manukan Island, Mamutik Island and Sapi Island. And the winner is…Manukan Island! Because there is this very cute restaurant at the end of the island, serving good Malay food and fresh coconut water! Plus, the water is crystal blue and you can spot Nemo and its family when snorkeling.
–Climbing the Mount Kinabalu
Are you a sporty one? Well, you may consider doing this – I definitely could not (I am more a beach type of girl). So for those who are too lazy to climb, you can find very nice view spots on the way to Kinabalu park. Stop the car, strike a pose and immortalize the moment.
–Watching the sunset on the waterfront
We did it and we approved it! That is a lovely experience: just picture yourself sipping your Cosmopolitan* (our favorite cocktail!), listening to music and enjoying the view. A multicolored sunset, from orange to yellow, with the islands in the background. Priceless!
You got my point: Kota Kinabalu is an amazing getaway. Do like us: bring what you need to maintain your fashionista status. We took our La Mariee tote bag (in limited edition – get it now before it is sold out!), our friendship trio bangles and our leather bracelet. Have a look at our album to discover our favorite clichés of Kota Kinabalu.
