    The first time, and friends just fly, airport, bought a ticket to Kuala Lumpur Kota Kinabalu, came out that Sabah is very large, there are four airports. And in Kota Kinabalu island hopping. The second time, with family and friends, to fly in Kota Kinabalu, famous hotel. Next day fly semporna, better known as the Hongkong and Shanghai hotels. And then horse Island, and three hotels. First is the home of horse Island divers, quite satisfactory. Later waves back semporna, on the West side of the island to find a backpacker hostel, super cheap and Nice, the room almost, but next door is opened by the Chinese, cheap seafood is amazing. Last is a SWM, most luxurious water villas, Sea serpents, scenery, sea, snorkeling. And swim with the turtles. Worth a place. Are going to have a chance to go to a motor jingdao and bang bang island.

Where to stay in Semporna

Not a very touristy destination on the whole, Semporna has somewhat limited accommodations, though they're definitely still workable. If you're basing yourself here for the scuba diving activities on one of the nearby islands, ask your operator or instructor about discounts at bed and breakfasts or guesthouses on Semporna. Otherwise, try one of several budget-friendly hostels near the archipelago, specializing in lodgings for divers, snorkelers, and travelers, and offering basic and clean rooms.
