There are daily flights of Malaysia
Airlines from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah. The
airport is an international hub of Malaysia Airlines on Borneo for
Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Hong Kong and some local destinations.
Shortly there's a new aggressive airline in Malaysia, which likes to stunt
with their fares: Air Asia. It's the RyanAir or Easy Jet of
Air Asia flies from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu and Tawau. To make it easy
for us (tourists) I have added a pricelist below of all the destinations of
Air Asia in Malaysia. You can see how attractive these prices are for us,
tourists. A one way trip from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu will cost you Euro
/ US Dollar 40,00. You can make a ticket reservation "online" from
all over the world. The website of Air Asia is: www.airasia.com.
For flight schedules of Malaysia Airlines you must call the airline company
in your country.
Fares of Asia Air:
Air-conditioned buses run regularly from
Kota Kinabalu to most major centers until around noon, after which
departures can be scarce, particularly on the longer trips.
There is a railway between Tanjung Aru just
south of Kota Kinabalu, Tenom and Beaufort. There is only one passenger
train that departs daily for Tenom and one that leaves on a Sunday for those
wishing to travel to Beaufort.
The train to Beaufort

Sabah has an excellent road system and these
are generally sealed. However subsidence and washouts frequently occur,
especially in the wetter seasons. Vehicles can be hired in various places
and is handy transport for getting to places where the public transport
