About me! I've been to these places many times while in Malaysia and I never ceased to be amazed by how beautiful my own country is. I've lived here for half my life and this place will always feel like home. I'm adventurous and I would love to bring you guys on them too! I'm an ambivert, and a good venture with great people brings out the extrovert in me :) I love making new friends and meeting people from different cultures.

Details about the accommodation: We will be residing in Kota Kinabalu, close to most landmarks on the way. We will be renting a car as it will be easier to get to each of the places. Each will have a private room with its own bathroom and facilities. I will pick a hotel with breakfast meals included and a comfortable setting. In case you need a pick-up from the airport, don't worry, I will be there to help you out! Keep me posted in the Q&A section if you have questions about the trip! I will answer you as soon as possible!
