A 4095 meter tall mountain

Mount Kinabalu is the tallest mountain in Malaysia and the 20th tallest in the World. Mainly because of the biological diversity the mountain is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Climbing the mountain is not an easy feat for the untrained; though it will absolutely be one of the best experiences ever. Watching the sun rise in the early morning will definitely make you forget all the hardships you had to endure during the hike up.

Hotels and resorts in Malaysia

Malaysia has well over a thousand hotels and resorts, and perhaps even more guesthouses and lodges. First time visitors to Malaysia may find it an overwhelming experience to select the right hotel. Luckily over the years many travelers have shared their experiences. By far the biggest place to check those experiences is at TripAdvisor. Though this website is definitely worth visiting during your search for the best hotel, you have to keep in mind that people that had bad experiences are more inclined to express their opinions in a review than people that had the time of their life. Also, ‘in-between’ hotels that are not bad but also not astonishing are not always reviewed; in these cases there is simply not that much to review.

If certain hotels are especially suitable for business travelers, or the best place to visit if you are traveling with children, we will mention this in our reviews. Want to share your own review, but the hotel, resort or guesthouse is not listed, please contact us and we will publish your review.
