Kundasang is akin to Malaysia’s version of New Zealand. Cows graze in the fields against a blue sky backdrop and it tends to get rather chilly here as well, so it’s best to pack along a sweater.

At Desa Cattle Dairy Farm, dairy products such as yogurt and ice cream are their bestsellers. Alternatively, there are plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits being sold by the side of the highway by local farmers, for those looking to grab some road trip snacks.

At Ranau, some of the things to do are to visit the UNESCO world heritage site of Kinabalu Park which is worth the hike for its spellbinding glimpse of Mount Kinabalu itself. Other attractions are the Poring Hot Spring and the Sungai Moroli Fish Massage at Kampung Luanti Baru.

For meals, some of Ranau’s best places to grab a bite are right at Sabah Tea Garden’s restaurant itself which serves meals specially prepared with tea, and that is an experience like no other!

Distance travelled: Approx. 129km
