Weekenders – Travel to Tip of Borneo and stay the night



Tip of Borneo is the northern most point of Borneo Island. Locals call this place Simpang Mengayau meaning a lingering junction, the meeting of 2 seas (Sulu Sea and South China Sea). It is located about 3 hours drive away from Kota Kinabalu city. While most people drop by to enjoy the amazing landscape and scenery, the best view happens during the sunset.
