My first blog entry is here where I talked about the maiden flight from Manila to Kota Kinabalu, and in here you can read about the Pacific Sutera Hotel where we stayed.
There are so much stories to tell, and to make this post more valuable to the readers, I made a quick guide so your visit to my blog will be much more worth-while.
Flying to Kota Kinabalu
Kota Kinabalu has an international airport which makes visiting from different parts of the globe easier - most of the carriers are from the other Asian Countries. In the Philippines, you may now fly directly from Manila to Kota Kinabalu through Zest Air. Flights is every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. You can check out the flight schedule here.
Flights are housed in Terminal 4, which is the old Domestic Terminal.
For most of the countries, it is a requirement to have a passport valid for more than 6 months at the time of arrival and departure in the host country. The rule is the same for Malaysia. Do not risk traveling with expiring passport. You might be lucky to get a departure stamp but re-entry to Philippines might be a problem. There was once a traveler who denied re-entry or departure from the host country because his passport is less than 6 months valid. He was held up until he was able to secure a new passport from Philippines - which means additional expenses and trouble.
Depending on the country of your passport, you might as well check what documentation would be needed to enter Malaysia. For Philippine Passport holders, no VISA is required to get to Kota Kinabalu.
Don't mind the Visa picture, that one is for my work permit in Indonesia :)
