Exploring East Borneo: Day 4

On the itinerary for my last day in Sabah, were some stops at the Borneo Museum and the Puh Toh Tze Temple. But I decided to make the day flexible instead and then get ready to leave for the airport by sundown.

The night before, I had thought of going to one of the famous islands to check out the beach scene but I decided against it thinking that I might get pressed for time.

I guess my feet had their own agenda for the day.

KK Esplanade

I went walking around the city and took pictures of KK Esplanade. Next thing I knew, I was approached by one of the ferryboat dispatchers telling me he could get me to Manukan Island for RM30.00 back and forth. I gave in to my impulse and got aboard the speedboat. For once, I’m glad to have given in.

Tunku Abdul Rahman Park:

Manukan Island

From the ferry point by the KK Esplanade, it only took about 10-15 minutes for me to get to Pulau Manukan which is one of the islands that comprise the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. Entrance to the Park cost me only RM10.00.

I had the speedboat all to myself, for just RM30.00 to the island and back.

The State Mosque: Masjid Negeri

On the way to the airport for my flight back home, I made sure to drop by and see the beautiful State Mosque.

The State Mosque can accommodate up to 50,000 worshippers and has beautiful gold inlays.
