January 28, 2011
Sabah is located on the northern part of the Borneo Island, the third largest island in the world. It has a land mass of 73,619 square kilometres, which is just slightly bigger than the Washington state of USA. Two thirds of Sabah shoreline are surrounded by seas and with its long shoreline, it also comes with many tropical islands, as many as one hundred, which range from the habitable big ones to exotic tiny ones.
Last century a prize winning book called “Land Below the Wind” which was written by celebrated American writer Agnes Keith, has created a lot of interest from the Western world to explore this wonderful mysterious land. Today with avid promotion done by the state government in many developed countries and also via words of mouth, Sabah is fast becoming the popular choice for an ultimate tropical vacation.
Sabah are divided into five divisions and each has its special and unique feature to offer the visitors. From nature to wildlife, and from white sandy beach to beautiful corals, they all continue to attract visitors to come back to Sabah for more. The five division are Interior, Kudat, Sandakan, Tawau and West Coast.

The enclosure at Kipandi Butterfly Park is probably the biggest in Sabah with an enclosed area of 15,000 square feet (estimated). As many as 30 to 40 species of butterflies can be seen flying freely arround the enclosure sipping nectar from one fruit tree to another. One of the rarest butterflies in Borneo is the Rajah Brooke (Trogoneptra Brookiana) which can be easily spotted at the enclosure. Others special butterflies are Golden Birdwing (Troides Amphrysus) and the Peacock swallow-tail (Papilio Karna). The best time to view these butterflies is in the morning from 9:30 to noon, when butterflies are at their most energetic display. Have those cameras ready too.

Kota Kinabalu was formerly known as Jesselton, and it is a rather young city with only about one hundred years of history. Jesselton came into administration at the turn of the 20th Century. The Kota Kinabalu Heritage Walk is centred around three areas, namely Gaya Street, Beach Street and Jesselton Point. This is a relativitely easy walk that will take about 2 to 3 hours. The best place to start the KK Heritage Walk would be the town padang, which cuts into Signal Hill. Located at the back of the State Library which in turn was next to the City Hall Building. Important events, games, parades, and even horse racing had been staged on this field in the past, and it is still being used for important events until this very day.

A three hours drive through picturesque padi fields and lush green forests toward the north of Kota Kinabalu, will inevitably lead one to the Tip Of Borneo, which is about 40 kilometres from Kudat.
