Need some opinions: 1.Which is better at this time of year: Island tour or Mt Kinabalu park/Poring hot springs? 2. goday tour with agency or self-drive (could it be cheaper & is it safe to drive on our own & can wefind the place easily?) 3. If staying at the hotel in Hypermall, how far is it to the town (suggestwhere)? 4/6
  5. 5. Kaki Cuti Cuti Malaysia answers:Well, great choice! If you go to K.K., make sure you try the awesome seafood available there.It’s somewhere near Asia City, just ask any taxi driver and I’m sure they’ll know where it is.They’ve got all sorts of seafood including fresh live soft-shelled crab!I would definitely recommend going to Mount. Kinabalu for a night or two, just to enjoy thenatural scenery and cool weather(especially now that it’s the year end, a.k.a. Raining season).Then, go to Poring Hot Spring for half a day and immerse yourself in the free hot spring there orrent a room to have a little more privacy while enjoying your hot spring with a small cost. Youcan also take a walk through the forest which is also located in Poring Hot Springs. There,you’re supposed to walk via hanging bridges to see what it’s like to be among the tree tops.It’s quite a long bridge but takes nothing more than 1/2 hour or 1 hour the most.If you come from K.K., it’s best that you drive. There’s only one road linking K.K. AndSandakan with Kundasang(that’s where Mount. Kinabalu is located) in the middle. You’ll knowit when you get there! It’s also better to walk on your own without following the day tour so thatthere’ll be more time for relaxation and everything depends on your own timing.If you’ve got anymore questions about Kundasang, Mount. Kinabalu or other parts of Sabah,feel free to email me. I’ll try my best to fill in those gaps for you.Happy Holidays!Mary asks… 5/6
  6. 6. Any advice for trips to Kota Kinabalu for seniors? Hi All I am taking my grandma to Kota Kinabalu for a holiday next month for 3 days. Besides wondering about the hotel and the city, what are the places which I can bring her (about 70 year old) for fun? I would surely like to take her to the Pori Hotspring, canopy walk and the Kinabalu Park (sounds fun) but i was wondering this is too physical challenging for her? I would normally go on my own but since I am taking her with me, should I join a tour group? Else, what are the things which a person of her age and me (26yo) can enjoy together? Thanks. Kaki Cuti Cuti Malaysia answers: ..i never been to KK…but u are sure a nice grandson….yr grandma very lucky too have a loving grandson like you …..i think you drive on yr own better..coz going on tours usually…very rush-rush….old people cannot take it…just go for walks in the parks will do….
