No offence, the road to go there is terrible although it's a tourist attraction. With so many beautiful villas and home-stays in that area, it ease my nerve. Worth to visit and you will feel mesmerize with the clear blue and torquise color ocean. Indeed...More

Hi, the only way to get to Tip of Borneo if by taxi. There is no public bus going there only to kudat town. Anyway, if you planning to stay there you can ask the hotel operator to arrange for transportation.

Renting a motorbike in KK for a week (3 Replies)
Hi, I am thinking of renting a motorbike in KK to get Myself to the tip of Borneo and back again in about five days time. Is this a sane idea? Note: I'm not used to riding on the left side, so I want to keep to simple roads mostly.

Response frombigw|
It is not a sane idea. You will be riding on rural roads on the left hand side of the road. We I last travelled, part of the trip was on rough unsealed roads. I would hardly describe the road as simple. You will need to avoid roaming cows, dogs, slow moving heavy truck and erratic local drivers.
Is this doable? (4 Replies)

Hi - your itinerary seems feasible. Perhaps consider staying somewhere near the mountain, perhaps Poring, on 14/6 and then do Kiulu the next day - Poring is away from KK, and Kiulu is towards KK, but not far from Kinabalu HQ. It would make sense to do Kiulu on the way back to KK rather than going to KK and then coming all the way back for it again. You can then combine the 15/6 KK town tour and the 17/6 island hopping - you can island hop from early in the morning till about 1 or so (best...More

The road is tarred and you will be traveling downhill all the way for about 30 minutes until you reach a junction indicating Kota Belud,from this junction presume you will take another 2 hours or so to Kudat. Along the way you will see some padi field,Be sure to top up your car at Kundasang cos along the way to Kota Belut there a very small filling station or if you missed it then you had to top at at Kota belut town itself. At kudat there are many hotel. Kudat golf & Marina Resort is...More
