My 1st holiday destination of the year was at SipadanKapalai Dive Resort. Leaving KK at 0650hrs on the 4th February to Tawau via flight AK6122 with another 3 friends from Kota Kinabalu then meet up another 2 new friends at Semporna before we departed to Sipadan Kapalai Dive Resort.
We were warmly welcomed by the Sipadan Kapalai Dive Resort airport rep when we walked out from the arrival hall. Then we took a 45 min bus ride from Tawau to Semporna. Here are the pictures to share with you all, cheers!
While we were waiting for the boat transfer to the resort
We left from Kota Kinabalu at time 1400 hours and made an overland journey for 2½ hours to Teratak Village, South Western part of Sabah. Upon arrival, they enjoyed light refreshment at the jetty and then proceeded for a late afternoon river cruise in search for the bizarre odd nose Proboscis Monkey along the river. This stretch of wetland is also home to other wildlife such as Long Tailed Macaques, Silver Langur Monkeys, varieties of endemic and migratory birds, monitor lizards, bats, otters, etc. When the darkness falls, witness the magic of thousands flickering fireflies on trees along the river bank. After having scrumptious dinner, we then returned to the jetty and transferred back to Kota Kinabalu. What a wonderful way to close the curtain of year 2011 with Pink Borneo Teratak River Cruise!
