Arriving in Kota Kinabulu was disappointing. Not only because our airport pickup never arrived (perhaps due to a small flight delay) and the one working pay phone had volume issues, but the city was shabby and lacked charm or character. This was definitely another side to Malaysia - the Borneo side.

After deciding not to check into the accommodation that didn't pick us up, we headed for the backpacker area, finding an abundance of low cost/low quality establishments, eventually settling into one when we couldn't carry our bags any further.
