Mosque
SojournersTook a taxi there and strolled back (around 1hr) to jetty town area.. Was disappointed that they charged a fee to go near to the surroundings of the mosque for phototaking.. but if you ignore the fee entrance and just walk further down you can skip the fee and still take some photos :p The stroll back to town was surprisingly pleasant as it was along a beach park and cycling trail #gowithfelix

D24***39Kota Kinabalu is a small town, not a lot of life, but it has everything you need. The malls are nice, movies are cheap, there's a nice fruit market. Also, it's a great point to go other places in Sabah.

点滴的梦想When you come to Malaysia, you must come to Sabah. It’s so beautiful. Don’t worry about language barriers. Most of the people are of Chinese descent. The local seafood must be tasted. It is very cost-effective. The natural scenery of the city is really not felt in China.

E32***27Must check out the beautiful sunset here. You can reach around 5:45pm and wait till 6:30pm. There are food stalls there where you can try out the mangoes and yummy avocado juice. I will not recommend the over priced durians though :)

芳芳FloraBy speedboat from Sabah, it takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to reach the roundabout island. On the day we went to the beach island, the color of the photos was not bright enough, especially when we went snorkeling in the cloudy weather. It was very dark and the visibility in the water was relatively low, but fortunately it was still on the island. Better light. On the return trip, there was heavy rain and thunder and lightning on the boat. It was also a very special experience. I feel that the sand on the island is not very fine. I have seen that the sand on the beach in several places is smoother than here. It is also possible that they receive more people here, and the staff is too busy, so I don’t go every day. Clean up the boulders and coral debris washed up by the sea on the beach. I heard that there were not so many tourists. On the day we went to the island, there were at least 200 people, and the area of the island was relatively small. From here, one could see the shore on the other side of the island. It may be due to the bad weather and the large number of people, so I feel very general about it. There is no itinerary that only sells ferry tickets. They are all "round trip fee + snorkeling fee + lunch meal fee". You can find this kind of package reservation on many different websites. We were on top of Ctrip at the time, and the service of the reception travel agency over there was good!

_We***24The Beihai Golden Bay Mangrove Eco-tourism Area is a scenic spot rich in coastal wetland style and Danjia folk culture in my country. It belongs to the eastern area of the Beihai Yintan National Tourism Resort. Because there is a large sand dune facing the sea and shaped like a crown, it is commonly known as the “big sand dune”. Crown Sand". The scenic area is about 20 square kilometers and consists of three parts: Men Scenic Area, Mangrove Ecological Sightseeing Area, and Danjia Folk Custom Park.
