Overview

Also known as Tanjung Simpang Mengayau which means ‘lingering junction’, here is where two great seas, the Sulu & South China sea meet to exchange big sloppy kisses. Walk to the very tip of Borneo, the third largest island in the world, why not? Also feast on breathtaking views of the dramatic rocky outcrop that lace the shoreline, sunsets are also righteously dramatic on this end, picture-perfect we’d say.

Three hours from the city marks Kudat, where the South China Sea and Sulu Sea converge. This little slice of paradise, bafflingly beautiful with the harmony of sunny skies, blue seas, palm tree was back then the first capital of British North Borneo Chartered. The journey to Kudat is a scenic one, of rolling hills, countryside vistas, paddy fields, villages, small road-side stalls selling delicious local treats and handmade crafts.
