    15 days in Sabah, KL, Krabi and Trang

    Just returned home this morning after a 15 days jam packed holiday schedule but it was the most enjoyable holiday ever. Went with my two friends and there was no dramas at all, everyone had a great time and we meet heaps of peoples along the way.

    Our first stop was Kota kinabalu not mentioning that we didn't check in till 1.30am or 4am sydney time and have to waking up at 7.30am for the morning tour. Then the next day we went to Sandakan to see the orang -utan and a night at turtle island to watch the turtles laying eggs and release the newly hatched. we then had a 4 hours drive from Sandakan to Semporna, a sleepy seaside town where divers use a hopping off point to go to Mabul and Sipanda island. Will post pics soon...

    Pic from my hotel at KK


    nice scenery on the KK tour stopping over for toilet breaks at a small town



    Nexus resort a five stars hotel in KK, just stopping by to pick up other clients



    Check out their ground front and gardens...its a massive resort with a golf course.

    Do you have any pictures from Trang ? I spent 2 very enjoyable years living there in 1998-2000; would like to see how the place has changed. Nice photos BTW.

    yes I do but only at the pier and on an islands. Trang is a very nice place but still not many tourist. will post Trang's pic once I loaded on my photobucket. I think took around 1000 pics in 15 days...too many to choose from.

    Aerial shot on the plane form KK to Sandakan, its has an amazing landscape.



    After a 45 minutes flight, once we landed we raced to the Orang Utan rehabititation centre for an afternoon fed.



    -----
    This is our dinner we had lobster, prawns and crabs at a resturant in Sandaka together was around 248 ringgit.

    Before and after shot of the lobster! yummy!



    -----
    This is where we stayed at Sempora Dragon Inn hotel, its very basic so basic that we still smell like mud after a shower and having a hard time flushing the toilet. Every morning at 5.30am you will heard a loud praying coming from the mosque.



    -----
    This is Sipadan Island just off Semporna, the water is crystal clear and you can spot green turtles off the beach.



    you can walk around the island in 30 minutes.

    Great shots, Sissy. Is the orang utan sanctuary the one in Brunei? I spend 2 nights in KK back in 2000. I'd love to go back to that region again.

    The orang utan is in Sandakan. The best time to go there would be May to October because the weather is better.

    great pics, Sissy. Thailand is nice, but Malaysia is a nice change too, and I'd love to go back.
