Oops, I took an unintentional blogging break again… because I guess I’ve just been having too much fun. :P Now that I’m just bumming at my grandma’s again, hopefully I’ll have more time to post. Unto August’s travel re-cap!
August 1 – 24: Kota Kinabalu, East Malaysia
I started the month with a red-eye flight to Kota Kinabalu in Sabah. I debated for a long time where to go after Chengdu. I eventually settled on KK because I’ve never been to East Malaysia and I’ve been curious to see what it’s like. And plus, I reeeeeally wanted to see the orangutans! And I believe Borneo is the only place you can see semi-wild orangutans.
I had previously met a friend in Penang who actually lives in KK. So with the promise of a local guide, I decided it was time I made my way to Borneo.
After spending 3+ weeks in KK, this is my conclusion: it is a really, really small and boring city. But if you have a local friend, you can have a lot more fun.
I’m pretty sure Chris drove me around the entire city multiple times, as well as some parts in the outskirts. It’s a really small place. There’s not much to do in the city itself. I didn’t even take a lot of pictures.
The view from my Airbnb was amazing though!
I spent a lot of time in KK’s dog cafe – my favorite place ever!
