Tip of Borneo

<

A three hours drive through picturesque padi fields and lush green forests toward the north of Kota Kinabalu, will inevitably lead one to the Tip Of Borneo, which is about 40 kilometres from Kudat. Ever since the road to the Tanjung Simpang Mengayau, the local named for Tip of Borneo, was sealed a few years back, and proper facilities like car park, cafeteria, and toilet are in place, this wilderness headland at the northwestern most tip of Borneo island has become a very popular spot for both locals and tourists alike.

From the car park a small clay paver road, dotted with many Rungus’ motifs, leads to the promontory, which is decorated by a truncated globe monument and a flagpole. The truncated globe monument seems like an eye-catching point for many visitors, as many of them are seen happily queuing up to take photos with the shorten globe for remembrance.
