Klias Wildlife Safari River Cruise - Proboscis Monkey & Fireflies

Klias Wildlife Safari River Cruise - Proboscis Monkey & Fireflies

star-5

Located on the Klias Peninsula is the Klias Wetland, a Mangrove Forest Reserve. With the bizarre-looking proboscis monkey gaining as much popularity with the tourists as the orang utan, the Klias Wetland with its large proboscis population is fast becoming the latest ecotourism destination in Sabah. Get those camera, binoculars on stand-by and keep your eyes peeled for the shy creatures in between the branches. As dusk settles in with a sunset, enjoy the sights and sounds in a natural setting as you have a sumptuous village style dinner. Show’s not over yet though, there is one more trip through the mangrove swamp, but this time it is graced by the secret rhythm of fireflies and their flickering lights. However, as much as we hate to disappoint, we are entering a natural habitat where sightings are common, but it is NOT GUARANTEED :)

The Essence of Kota Kinabalu

The Essence of Kota Kinabalu

Sabah’s gateway to Borneo has long been on the radar for those eager seeing more of the natural splendour of Malaysia’s green heart. However, the city has blossomed over the years, where it once did not have a prominent position on the tourism map. Called KK by its residents, Kota Kinabalu has turned into a melting pot of culture, food and a strong affinity towards that what keeps the city such a pleasure to wander through. Its demands to follow in the footsteps of the 21st century are there, but holding tight to its historical values, sights and landmarks makes it an excellent example of old versus new. Turn your Malaysia Borneo exploration complete with our half-day touring the sights, sounds and cultural aspects of one of Malaysia’s thriving travel hubs.
