Kota Belud and Mengkabong Village

hi, I am planning to drive from Kinabalu Park in the morning to Kota Belud. Spend half day there and then continue journey to Mengkabong Village in the afternoon.

Is this plan advisable or I should spend 1 day for one of the places only? Anything to see in both places?

Can I use Jalan Ranau bypass from Kinabalu Park to Kota Belud.

Thank you in advance.

Kota Belud is a regional town an has not any more to offer than other regional towns. If you want to go to Mengakabong and visit a regional town, I suggest you look at Tuaran Town as it is much closer to Menkabong.

Like Kota Belud, it has a reasonable Sunday market. It has a a couple of Supermarkets, local shopping and a a lot of local restaurants and cafes. The is also a large Chinese Pagoda and a wet market.
