Most of Borneo is jungle and mountains, but there are some big and modern cities as well. I arrived one of them today, Kota Kinabalu, largest city in the province of Malaysian Borneo, and surprisingly modern. But why am I here?
My main reason to go Borneo is to climb Mount Kinabalu, a more than 4000 metres high granite peak, the highest in South-East-Asia. But the mountain-hut was full-booked so I have to wait a couple of days (Oct 30) before I can venture into the national park and climb the peak (it's more of a hike).
In the mean time, I have done some sightseeing in Kota Kinabalu. I especially loved the heritage village with all the longhouses.
