Day 4: More Shopping @ Kota Kinabalu + Hello Kundasang

Day 1 & 2: Snorkel + Rain + Hell @ Kota Kinabalu

22nd March 2007 Thursday (Day 1)
The journey from LCCT to Kota Kinabalu took about 2 hours and 30 minutes. We touched down at Terminal 2 about 3 minutes before midnight. *yawn* Because we booked the KK mountain climb and hostels stay with a local KK tour operator, they provide transport to pick us from the airport. Yipeeee!

Our accommodation for the night and the next 2 nights was at Step-in Lodge, a budget hostel that cost RM35 per pax a night (air-conditioned).

Step-in Lodge is strategically located near the famous Filipino market @ handicraft market, night market, restaurants and shopping malls. I like this lodge because it makes me feel at home. Besides that, the place is clean and the staffs are ever helpful.
