Kota Kinabalu + Singapore Itinerary : Next Destination

It has been a habit for us and our friends to have a vacation outside the country every year, to leave the work behind to de-stress and enjoy what the world has to offer.  This 2011, we are very excited to spend our days in Kota Kinabalu and Singapore.

The whole itineray was created by ourselves, based on the places we wanted to explore.  We arranged a local tour for Kota Kinabalu, particularly for teh Kiulu Rafting Tour and Poring Hot Spring, since we thought that it would be better than to arrange transportations of our own.  But for the Tunku Abdul Raman Marine Park, we decided to do it on our own.

For Singapore, we will be travelling the whole trip on our own.

Estimated budget for the whole trip is 40,000 pesos for 8 days.  This amount includes all airfares, accomodations, tours and entrance fees, transportation fees, and basic food.

@ed: we try to plan for budget trips, but not to the extent of living in dirty and unsafe hotels. Our style is to plan ahead, like more than 6 months before, so that we already know the particular dates to fly. We wait for promo tickets in different airline to save on airfare. Then we don't get any travel tours Philippine travel agents. We find local tours, if needed, then we coordinate with them directly. We can try doing that.

when you're in Singapore, stay around Little India. Loved my hostel stay there! You could all fit in one dorm room so that should be fun!!! Enjoy KK and Singapore. Don't drink too much Tiger beer in Singapore, you'll lose all your money! he he

@Pinoy Boy Journals: Thanks for the tip =) too bad we already booked our hotel in Balestier Value Hotel. We should have posted this earlier. Yes, I hope we enjoy it also.

@Pinay Travel Junkie: yeah, we are going there, in Manukan Island. I made some reaearch and asked the locals. They told me that Manukan Island is the best there. Thanks for the safe wish =)
