Nature lover by heart, but not much time to kill? Enjoy one of the lovely river cruises around Kota Kinabalu.  On the river, you will get the chance to see the endemic Proboscis Monkeys in the wild. Not to mention other wildlife as well, such as Flying Foxes, various types of Langurs, Crocodiles, and loads more. In the evening, be awed by a special performance from the fireflies with their “flashing lights” in their habitat.

Our favorite cruise is the one in Weston.  Book it here or read our blog on Weston River Cruise for you to get the feel before deciding to go for a visit.
