Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park is very accessible from Kota Kinabalu city (Sabah).
20 minutes boat ride from Jesselton Point to Manukan Island. Jump into water, and you will see coral fish.
The water was not as clear as what we have seen at Pulau Redang last month. 5 minutes boat trip can transfer from Manukan to Sapi Island. You will be greeted by monitor lizard (often mistaken by tourist as the Komodo Dragon.
Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park is indeed a great getaway destination for tourists who visit Kota Kinabalu. It offers a dramatic contrast to scaling the highest peak in Malaysia (Mount Kinabalu) and diving/snorkling below sea level.
We took the morning flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Just in time for the first day of the annual harvest festival.
The ethnic groups in Sabah used to celebrate the harvest at their respective tribal village.
Since 1960, the various ethnic groups have gathered together to celebrate the festival.
