SABAH ROAD TRIP (PART 1) – THE ITINERARY

I have always wanted to try road tripping within Sabah and we finally did it on December 2018. I would love to say we spontaneously packed our stuff and go like most would, but nope! We’re not that spontaneous haha! We thoroughly discussed about the trip and I had to plan our trip just like how it would be if we would have travelled to any other foreign land!#plannersforlife

So yes, I did my little research before we head off to our local adventure. It was an easy going and laid back trip so there were a few attractions we decided to skip because the journey got a bit tiring.

For this trip that I’m about to share, we covered Tuaran, Kudat, Kota Marudu, Kundasang, Ranau, Keningau and Tenom within 4 days so I’ll be splitting my post in three parts.

  • Part one – The Itinerary
  • Part two – Day 1 & 2
  • Part three – Day 3 & 4

So here goes!
