"Buses run daily from Kota Kinabalu Bus Station, but the journey is long and takes nine hours. It is always wise to bring plenty of water and something for lunch (toilet usually on the bus). There are half a dozen bus companies that run to Tawau. The rate is RM70 (2021), but the price is subject to change."
