* A traveler said: "Having been on dinner cruises at home in Australia, and being disappointed, we were pleasantly surprised by how upmarket, well organised and well catered this cruise was. The boat was clean and in good condition, the staff were very friendly and helpful, there was live music and the food was delicious and ample to cater for the passengers."

* A traveler said: "Great pick up and drop off from hotel in Kota Kinabalu. Very convenient. Enjoy the view of Mt. Kinabalu, the highest peak in South East Asia. The fish farm was unique because you could feed the carps from your hand, just let them bite the fish pellets off your hands, totally harmless because the carps had no sharp teeth. You could pet them like pets. What an experience. Walking in a hanging bridge across a tropical rain forest that's older than the Amazon jungle is another experience all together."

Located in Tamparuli about an hour’s drive from Kota Kinabalu City, the beautiful St. Veronica’s Hill towers over the rustic Tamparuli town and surrounding villages at 278 meters above sea level.  The locals of Sabah call it Bukit Perahu, which means “Hill Boat” in Malay, because of an inverted boat-shaped rock that sits near the summit’s clearing. St. Veronica’s Hill offers a leisure trek up to the peak on a rocky terrain.   While the majority of the trail leads through trees and bushes, occasional shrub openings towards the top afford a splendid bird’s eye view.    In the early morning, a sunrise hike will be rewarded with a spectacular view of Mount Kinabalu overlooking the misty low lands - giving you a true “Top of the World” experience! A combination of scenic views, exercise, and a little bit of mystery thrown together, this hill catches the fancy of both hiking enthusiasts and leisure explorers alike.

Mount Trusmadi is a great alternative to Mount Kinabalu. The climb is even tougher and more challenging than Mount Kinabalu. Imagine a hike surrounded with pristine jungle and nature, cool mountain air and away from the crowds, that feels like you have a private camp all to yourself. Mount Trusmadi is strenuous, so do expect to get really mud dirty during the rainy season.
