    Where to stay in Sabah

    Just north of the Equator, Sabah is a place to visit with a specific purpose in mind. Bordering Sarawak on the north-western flank of Borneo Island, the region is home to the 4101m Mount Kinabalu, an abundance of exotic wildlife and a landscape of lush vegetation. Adventure enthusiasts who make the trip are here to climb the loftiest peak between the Himalayas and New Guinea but Sabah is best known to travellers as home to a thriving wildlife population that includes endangered species such as the forest-dwelling orang-utans and hornbills.

    The city centre, Kota Kinabalu, will almost certainly be your first port of call when you visit. The city’s friendly citizens and its proximity to a clutch of idyllic islands, makes the city irresistible. Sabah’s accommodation options occupy spots on either side of the budget spectrum – the centre has many Chinese-run budget hostels as well as upscale ventures that vie for the lucrative top spot. Nevertheless in recent times, charming mid-range establishments have been mushrooming all over the place – head to the Promenade Hotel Kota Kinabalu for a good deal.
