Kundasang is a town located in Sabah, which is famous for the view of Mount Kinabalu and the Desa cattle dairy farm. We stayed in a lodge in Spring Garden, which had a beautiful scenery of the mountains and the garden. It was a very peaceful and tranquil setting – perfect for a relaxing holiday. During our stay in Kundasang we visited a fish spa. This was no ordinary fish spa where you put your feet in a little tank with small fish inside, but a river with hundreds of large fish swarming around your feet (and body if you were brave enough). It took a while for us to get used to the fish sucking our feet.
Kudat is at the tip of Borneo and is the capital of the Kudat District. We went here on a day trip to visit a fish farm, where we were able to swim with the fish. We were pretty reluctant to get into the water at first because the fish were double our size and looked more like sharks. After being reassured by the tour guide that the fish were harmless, we managed to get into the water and have a swim (the one using the lifebelt is Dave HAHA). Check out my Instagram to see the seafood we had whilst in Kudat.
Kota Kinabalu is the state capital Sabah (also known as KK). We stayed in an apartment which overlooked the sea and the surrounding islands. The apartment also had an infinity pool outside where we were able to enjoy the sunsets. Next to the apartment was the Marriott hotel, where we got enjoy some refreshing cocktails with chicken wings and potato chips.
There were all sorts of restaurants and cafes in KK and had a wide range of food choices. Didn’t get to take many photos of the food but we did enjoy the food. The soft shell crab spaghetti was one of our personal favourites.
We did take a lot of videos but unfortunately they can’t be uploaded onto the blog (cause we’re using the free version lmao). If you want to see more then check out our Instagram! If you would like to see a Youtube video on our Malaysia trip then let us know in the comments 🙂
