Sabah Trip - 4 days for RM300

My friends and I were able to go to ALL the four places stated on that board! Ambitious much? pic by Wafa.
I've been receiving a lot of emails and questions on places and things to do in Sabah. I was not that knowledgeable on that matter as I don't really tour around Sabah. All I do is go back to my hometown in Kota Belud and stay at home. =p

But that changed when my friends' planned an extensive trip of five days (for me it was four days) to Sabah with the itineray as planned below. Total costs per person was only RM300 and for me only RM245. Cheap right? So the conclusion is, better to rent a car and travel in groups of FIVE to save more. =)
