A bit on our geographical location...

Where?Where are we?

Night Scenery in Kota Kinabalu
We are at Kota Kinabalu, the State capital city of Sabah (formerly known as North Borneo), in EAST MALAYSIA. Kota Kinabalu, formerly known as Jesselton, is located on the west coast of Sabah and has a population approximately 300,000 people.
The main attraction of Sabah is the Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in Borneo Island. Standing at about 4,093 metres above the sea level the mountain is a popular spot from climbers all around the world including scouts. It is only about 60km away from Kota Kinabalu.
Mt Kinabalu is also the venue of the annual Climbathon event, one of the toughest mountain race in the world. Other attractions are the Sepilok rehabilitation centre for orang utan in Sandakan, and the islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park and Sipadan Island which is well known for its tropical reefs and beautiful corals.
