We spent two weeks in Malaysia, traveling around the Langkawi island and Sabah region. We visited few islands trying to find good spot for snorkeling, this is it. Crowd free, smell free, litter free, peaceful place.

Wear good shoes if you're planning to clamber down to the tip and pro tip: look up at night! If you're lucky enough to experience a cloudless night, you'll see stars like... More

When you're in Sabah, make time to visit the Tip of Borneo to witness the legendary sunset and you will not regret. Spectacular sight to behold and bask in the beautiful sunset which is said to be the most beautiful in Malaysia.

It took us more than 3.5 hours drive from Kota Kinabalu to the tip of Borneo, but the trip is worth every effort in driving. Nice scenery with crystal clear water. Too bad we did not stay overnight to enjoy the beach. The place offer chalets for tourist who like to stay overnight.

When you stay in this area it is nice to see this landmark. Also the view is nice, but not very special. We saw some nice birds on our way to this place.

3 hours drive from KK with very challenging road It was raining while we on the way there. We're worried the sun will not show up. We got lucky, thanks God for pampering us with this beautiful sunset. It's so worth it!
