Hi, I am going to Malaysia in august and planning the following….
Day 1 (arrive KL afternoon) to 6not sure
Day 7 fly to tawau for diving in Sipadan-Mabu
Day 13 fly from tawau to Kota Kinabalu
Day 14 & 15 climbing mount Kinabalu
Day 16 Kota Kinabalu ( hot springs / meat flower)
Day 17 fly Kota Kinabalu to KL
Day 18 to 20 KL then home.
What can I do for first 6 days, stay on west island and avoid spending too much money as second half has flights / diving and mountain.
