Sabah is one of the go-to places in Malaysia, with its diverse culture and wildlife. With almost unlimited Sabah attractions, it would be quite hard to choose which activities to do when only given a limited time. If you opt for to go to the beach, then allot a day or two for Sabah island hopping.
Start by going to Tunku Abdul Rahman Park in Kota Kinabalu
This park has five islands to choose from: Pulau Manukan, Pulau Gaya, Pulau Sulug, Pulau Sapi, and Pulau Mamutik. Personally, I find Pulau Sapi as the island with the most beautiful beach, so you might want to spend a couple of hours there.
If one day is not enough, you can spend the night in a Sabah island resort and finish the tour the next day. There is a Manukan Island Resort Sabah and in the same island, you can find the most development among the five islands. See for yourself what Sabah diving is all about and discover the marine life they are very famous for.
Cultural Villages and Maliau Basin
Of course, Sabah has other things besides islands and beaches. Many tourists also go to Sabah Cultural Villages, with the two most popular being Monsopiad cultural village and Mari-Mari cultural village. Sabah is the epitome of multiculturalism, and these types of places are the evidence.
On the other hand, some visitors want more heart-thumping action and they can do just that by going to Sabah basin. The most visited is Maliau Basin, Sabah’s pride and glory when it comes to the natural beauty. Come here in groups. Not only will it give cheaper rates, it is safer for trekking. Here, you can see Maliau Falls with all its majestic force.
