In my previous trip to Kota Kinabalu Sabah, I took the chance to stay in this Capsule by Container Hotel just for the sake of experience. I wanted to try it out for quite sometime already but normally it was fully booked (walk-in). So this time around, I've pre-booked it like a week before my flight.
I took the 9 hours single size bed for the price of RM100 which includes a 'goodie bag' filled with a bottle of mineral water, towel together with toothbrush and toothpaste. For those who rented the capsule, you may use the locker and shower without extra payment. The separate price stated above are meant for outsiders who basically wants to either rent a locker or only take shower to freshen up.
I prefer to stay at the lower bunk (ground floor bunk)
Welcome to my crib.
As you can see, the space is quite small but it is just nice for a short nap.
The capsules are divided into 3 categories. You can either choose ONLY FEMALES, ONLY MALES or MIXED.
The bed is quite comfortable too. Overall it's a good experience. You should give it a try too. YOLO!
Up Up and Away.
Flight from KLIA2 to Kota Kinabalu is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. Even further than Bangkok yo! Sangat sangat OVER-THE-SEAS.

that you can find in any random toilet.
Our first stop was at Imago Mall. We had our lunch in Upperstar (one of their hype franchise which is only available in Sabah, Kota Kinabalu to be precise).
Tanjung Aru Beach
Our next stop was to visit their beautiful beaches.
Thanks to our local driver - Mark for taking us to this awesome private beach called Shang Ri-La Resort & Spa, Tanjung Aru Beach.
One word to describe the place. AWESOME!
We spent couple of hours there witnessing the beautiful sunset.
Just for your info, Borneo sun sets about an hour earlier. The place gets darker around 6-ish.
The skies look like cotton candy. I kid you not!
Restoran 3 Rasa
We had our dinner at this '3 flavour restaurant' as per direct translation. It's located around Jalan Tun Fuad Stephen (if I'm not mistaken) whereby the place was covered with a whole stretch of seafood restaurants for you to choose from.
If you're in Sabah, SEAFOOD IS A MUST EAT because it's damn freaking cheap compared to the price in Peninsular Malaysia.
We were having a tough time deciding which restaurant to choose but at the end of the day, we settled down with Restoran 3 Rasa. The reason was because, their restaurant seems to have like the most customers. So it must be better compared to others kot? Lol, but I think most of the restaurants served delicious food and most importantly they are all fresh.
We had prawns, fishes, fried squids, lato mixed with agar-agar and clams.
All those for less than RM150.
More updates on what to eat and where to go in Sabah in my upcoming post.
