Le Meridien- Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

We now move on to our KK trip. 

As our end year trip focused on just travelling locally, we decided to go gung-ho for the week and cover both the Peninsular and East Malaysia within one week. Not all the states mind you. Just Malacca and Sabah. In total, we spent only half a day in KL for that week.

It's my first time to Kota Kinabalu (KK). Hubs had been here twice before but for work. We decided to take it slow this time around and focused on simple itineraries, of which one had to be abandoned at the last minute due to repair works needed for the train.

Hubs was totally in charge of accommodation and I was particularly happy he chose Le Meridien, KK. Its strategic locale gave us the advantage of not having to rush about around town as much as everything is just right in front of our hotel.  


Look how spacious the room is...


The bathroom is just as big.


One pet peeve I had was the loud creaking whenever you open the glass door to the shower. Other than that, everything was just perfect. We couldn't wait to start our KK trip.


And this is the breathtaking view from our room. 

You see those tin rooftops and white tents? That is where the Filipino Market is situated and traders are setting up the night market for the evening.

This is me looking to the right.


And this is to my left. 

You can see the islands from here!


Before we get started, tea time! Their private lounge on the 12th Floor serves finger food and drinks and was very much welcomed as we wanted to save room for dinner. Enough to sate our palette whilst we explore the markets before dinner.
