We all know that Sabah is haven to many natural wonders and attractions such as the Prosboscis Monkey and one of the highest peaks in Southeast Asia, Mount Kinabalu.
Besides the typical KK trip to Kundasang, Filipino market and island hopping at Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, why not try something else like boarding on North Borneo Cruises instead? Because truth to be told, it is in our nature as humans to switch things up a bit every once in a while.
Plus, this cruise will definitely blow you away!
Amazing Sabah views
Can it be more obvious than this? There is a certain healing power in the view of a magical Kota Kinabalu sunset. All your worries will definitely be washed away once you land eyes on the breath-taking sunset over the horizons of Mamutik and Manukan Island.
Plus, this is the best time for that much needed #instafeed update. Luckily, the three-level North Borneo Cruises has many instagrammable spots to choose from! Our favourite photo spot is in between the Sabah and North Borneo Cruises’ flags.
Our tip: Because of the unpredictable Malaysian weather, make sure to check the weather forecast before you board to have the best North Borneo Cruises experience.
Gastronomic Food Options On-Board
Go down through a spiralling staircase and enter the lower deck where you will feast on a dinner cruise. From sushi, prawns, chicken, satay, local Malaysian kuehs and puddings, everything delicious that you can possibly imagine is available on board at North Borneo Cruises.
All you need to prepare beforehand is an empty belly, so you can savour the most delicacies at North Borneo Cruises.
Our tip: Board early so you can snatch a window seat, while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Kota Kinabalu’s waves splashing by during dinner.
Fantastic Live Entertainment
When the sun’s down, it’s time to sing the night away with the live band on board. Besides Malay and English, the live band is super talented in singing various languages whether it is Japanese, Chinese, Korean, or Tagalog. So it is no surprise to hear the non-Malaysian tourists on-board to sing along with them!
Before you head back to Kota Kinabalu city, burn all those calories of eating good cruise food by dancing along to ‘Sayang Kinabalu’ altogether with the staff of North Borneo Cruises. Just make sure you memorise the lyrics (they’re not hard to remember) prior to this dinner cruise!
