#edisijelajah - Borneo Tour 2017

​Assalamualaikum kawan-kawan. I would like to share my itinerary and total expenses for my recent trip to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and Kuching, Sarawak.

Borneo Tour 2017

Itinerary

6 Sept 2017
KUL - BKI
Lokan Bakar. We forgot which stall have the best lokan bakar, so we decided to try Sudi Mampir. The taste wasn't to our expectation. It was the wrong stall :( 



7 Sept 2017
Desa Cattle Dairy Farm
Crystal Hill - to enjoy the view from the balcony.
Poring Hot Spring - we went hiking to Kipungit waterfall because we arrive late and not intended to try the hot spring. 
Stargazing at our hostel. 



Gelato at Desa Cattle Dairy Farm.



If you came early you can see Mount Kinabalu here. 


View from Crystal Hill





Kipungit Waterfall
Stargazing at our hostel but not many stars can be seen (or maybe I don't know how to set my camera?)

Hotel
Hounon Ridge Farmstay (2 nights) - RM250

This farm stay went viral these few months so we decided to try out this place. We strongly recommend anyone who want to enjoy Gunung Kinabalu's view to stay at this place. You're going to experience a bumpy ride to get there, but once you reach the place, you will enjoy it. Trust me. The view was breathtaking. Subhanallah. 


my bed.

Sabah was good to us. But we had some disaster at Kuching. All of us had stomachace, one of my friends down with fever and diarrhea and couldn't enjoy our trip at Kuching :( 
But that's okay. It was still memorable to me. 

If you want to taste some local foods at Kundasang, you may visit the Kundasang town. There's many stalls and shops that sells street foods and vegetables for you to try. We recommend you to try their chicken wings. 

Kinabalu was best viewed around 0600 am to 0900 am and around 6:00pm. Make sure you didn't sleep after you perform your subuh prayer. Normally it is cloudy at noon and you can't even see the Kinabalu's peak. 

That's all from me. Please feel free to ask if you need anything :)
