    Hi all,

    Does anyone know about getting by bus from Sandakan to Mt. Kinabalu? The guide book says the express buses from Sandakan to KK will drop you at the turnoff to the national park; is it much of an ordeal to get from there to where the accommodation is? We plan to stay somewhere outside the park for the night, before going on the climb.

    Hi Seonach,

    I don't know anything about buses going there. Maybe this link could help you http://www.lonelyplanet.com/malaysia/malaysian-borneo-sabah/kinabalu-national-park/transport/getting-there-away Or you could try www.ktmb.com.my (trains)
