Treat yourself to a short weekend getaway from bustling Kuala Lumpur to the far flung, gorgeous island of Borneo where the city of Kota Kinabalu awaits you! Explore the off-beaten path within Sabah's safe confines and witness the magnificent Malaysian countryside inhabited mostly by immigrants from Indonesia and the Philippines. Visit historical and cultural attractions including the island's major places of worship, Sabah State Mosque and the Kota Kinabalu City Mosque. Take a look into the city's interesting facts and figures at the Sabah Museum, the towering Menara Tun Mustapha, and the University of Sabah.
Take a scenic trip around North Borneo aboard an iconic steam train. Travel back in time as you hop on a refurbished cabin that recreates the popularity of steam trains in the 1900s. The train cars boast a carved brass logo that exhibits the original emblem of the railway operator. Don't worry about missing a meal during the trip as delicious and filling servings of breakfast and lunch will be provided to you. Enjoy the scenic views as you pass by villages, coastal towns, rice fields, and different plantations along the way.
