It will cost you about £6 to arrive at Kota Kinabulu city centre. If your destination is Tawau or Sanfakan in Sabah, or Kuching in Sawak, it will cost you about £12.50 by taxi to these city centres. You can also rent a car from the airport if you prefer to do the driving. There are no public transportation options from the airport, so taking a taxi or hiring a car is usual.

What are some things to do in Borneo?

Borneo is Asia’s largest island and part of the Malay Archipelago. It’s northern, Malaysian-owned part of the island is a popular destination for holidaymakers who crave sprawling flora and fauna, thanks to Borneo’s sprawling green spaces and incredible wildlife. Have an incredible experience at the Rainforest Discovery Centre in Sabah, where you can walk along with elevated canopies and observe rare birds, wild plants, and the occasional orangutan above the trees. You can possibly see a wild orangutan if you visit Kuching’s Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, a refuge and education centre for Borneo’s endangered orangutans. Take a guided boat tour along the Kinabatangan River in Sabah for a chance to see native Borneo wildlife, like elephants, crocodiles, and Proboscis monkeys in their natural setting. A day trip to Labuan Island just off the coast of Sabah will have you enjoying an afternoon sprinting across warm sandy beaches and luxuriating in the azure sea.
