It has just occurred to me that visitors to Kota Kinabalu and Sabah would find a map useful. Yes, I can be slow at times. I have a simple map about Sabah, and one on how to get to 1 Borneo Lifestyle Mall. It should be enough to give you an idea of what all these exotic locations are in Sabah. What it will not do is show you the scale and distances. But you will discover that distances don’t really matter when you arrive here. All traveling is based on how much time it takes to get there.
Take my post about Tenom town for instance, based on a distance of about 170 km, it shouldn’t take the 3 to 4 hours needed. The distance to Tawau is less than 600 km, yet it takes about 9 hours by road. Many of the towns outside Kota Kinabalu requires traveling on mountain roads. The roads are utilized by 12 tonnes trucks and tour coaches, and the road itself is a simple surfaced 2 lane affair. Sometimes overtaking on the mountain requires skill and nerves of steel. Not to mention faith in your vehicle.
But it isn’t as bad as it sounds. Nothing ever is, think Adventure! Anyway, the best (and free) way to get a map of Kota Kinabalu and Sabah is at the airport. Either Kota Kinabau International Airport (KKIA) or Terminal 2 (T2). When you exit the Arrival Hall, you can see lots of Travel Agency booths. Just pick up what you need, and if you cannot find it, ask the representative there. Remember, it’s free. The people of Kota Kinabalu and Sabah are a friendly lot, most of whom will be able to speak English. Not only will you have a map, you will also know the places of interest. Hope this helps.
