Kota Kinabalu adventure 亚庇探险 （1）
Hello my friends, we are back! We arrived home tonight at about 9:30 pm.
All of us enjoyed this wonderful trip except for two members.
On Tuesday 3/3/09, we arrived at Kota Kinabalu at noon. We were greeted by Luke Yong, the Inbound operation Manager of Chong Fui Tour Sdn Bhd and guide Miss Aidah.
After a sumptuous lunch, we started our itinerary immediately by going to Klias proboscis monkey sanctuary, two hours bus ride from KK.
We enjoyed the boat ride to see the beautiful and serene scenery of mangrove swamps which was the habitat of proboscis monkeys that can be found only in Borneo.
It was very exciting to watch proboscis monkeys at their natural habitat. We stayed on until darkness fell to watch fireflies. It was far less fireflies than in Kuala Selangor, Selangor.
It was a long day. We left Klias for our apartment-hotel in town at about 8:00 pm. We were tired but in high spirit and enjoyed the day very much.
However, about 10 kms from our apartment-hotel, a loud scream sank our heart and holiday spirit. (more pictures and video at bottom)
