Cushenm asks, “is there any accommodation near the Shangri-la Rasa Ria Resort, or somewhere along the route between the Kuala Abai jetty (for Mantanani) and Shangri-la Rasa Ria Resort?
Can you give any information on how to travel from Shangri-la Rasa Ria Resort (after seeing Orang Utans) to Kinabalu Park? Is hiring a car or car + driver the only option?”
