Tourist Photos From Mt Kinabalu to Pulau Banggi.

This blog post starts off from Mount Kinabalu, where I spent about four days wandering about the lower tracks of the mountain.

This moth was huge. And it had snake heads at the ends of each wing. Hopefully to scare off predators.

Lots of people climb this every day. More than a hundred a day. And they pay massive amounts of money to do so. The mountain is more than four thousand meters high, I think.

All the water taxis gunning it against the side of the wharf, waiting to take passengers to the islands just off the town. It is mayhem.

It was Chinese New Year and they had the lion dancers at the Kota Kinabalu Mall. This kid is just getting into his lion costume.

The lion dancers climbed up on these poles and did all these stunts. The crowd loved it.

It is not really a kampung, more like a bunch of holiday houses built on the beach.

This is a view from the wharf. The tide went out for hundreds of meters, so the wharf was pretty much useless except at high tide. doh!

This is my hut on the beach on Banggi Island. It was pretty comfy. I had a couple of mattresses and electricity at night, so I was very content.

There were monkeys, otters and cows hanging out around this river mouth.

I liked this really colourful caterpillar that I found in the rainforest.
