Day 2 Poring Hot Spring – Kinabalu Park (B, L)

0700 hours – pickup from hotel in city and depart on a 3 hours drive to Poring Hot Spring. En route, make a stop at Nabalu village to savour local fruits and to shop for local handicrafts.

Overnight at 3* Hotel.

Day 3 Mamutik or Manukan Island Day Trip Park (B, L)

Just 15 minutes boat ride from Kota Kinabalu, are the beautiful coral islands of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park. Offering pristine white beaches, clear water and coral reefs, this is the perfect getaway from the town.

Basic washroom facilities are available on the island. Enjoy lunch on the island. Return to Kota Kinabalu mid-afternoon.  Overnight at 3* Hotel.

Day 4 Klias Wetlands River Safari  (afternoon until night) (B, D)

Free at leisure in the morning or explore the city on your own. Pickup from hotel in the early afternoon and begin your journey, passing through padi fields, small kampungs and oil palm plantations. Your destination is the Garama / Klias Wetlands, some 25 km south of Beaufort, a beautiful environment of rivers, mangrove forest and sago palms. This is home to the unique proboscis monkey, endemic only to Borneo. In the late afternoon, as our small open boat drifts past the mangroves, groups of these amazing animals make their way to the riverbank before settling down for the evening. This is a wonderful opportunity to watch these animals in the wild as dusk falls. Upon return, witness the glittering fireflies on the nearby trees. Dinner is provided, before the return road trip back to Kota Kinabalu. Overnight at 3* Hotel.
