    The main objective of this museum is to show the varieties of fashion of local and indigenous people in Sabah. They dressed up dolls with these and put it up on display.
    Kinda spooky if you come alone at night though hahaha.

    Anyway there's lots to learn here, if you are interested in this kind of thing.

    Interesting to come here just to look around the market. 15 minutes from the Shangri-La Rasa Ria. It is mainly a food market, nothing touristy here. I asked the taxi to stop off at the San Ling Tuaran pagoda on the way back, really nice.

    It's good, the underground part was quite boring but the top part was good. Staff is extremely friendly! Food takes quite a while to prepare. The animals are friendly. It's extremely heaty so remember to bring some water. There is a café though. Other than the heat it's good.

    The place is very nice and clean.
    Recommended for family with kids to visit, but the fee is pricy even for local.

    Sabandar Beach is a non-crowded beach popular among locals, a long and wide stretch of sandy beach suitable for swimming and water activities. The beach faces West and is the most suitable for viewing sunset. There was toilet and shower facility, where a small amount of payment was required to use the facility. There was a row of food stalls at the beachfront selling local food and drink at affordable prices. Horse-riding activity on the beach was available as well. On the day of my visit, a herd of cows was seen on the beach as well. I enjoyed the company of the cows while viewing the sunset together.

    A relatively small but beautifully built pagoda. A great spot for a bird's eye view of Tuaran town from the top. Caution is needed as the flight of stairs can be steep for some.

    Had a lovely round of golf on a Friday in January, stunning day. Nice course, lots of water hazard :). Make sure to have a quick bite at the cafe, and try the Tuaran Mee!

    After we checked out of our room we had time to kill before fly out so we book a massage and a facial. Upon arriving the host was warm and welcoming. The staff lovely. Great service worth the time but not cheap comparing to Australia prices. But it is a remote location and a huge resort with overheads.

    If you're on your way to Poring Hotspring this is also a good place to drop by. In our case our itinerary was this Cowboy town, Upside down Museum, Mt.Kinabalu Park, Desa Farm, Poring Hotspring, Rabbit Farm and lastly the Rafflesia Flowers.
    It was indeed a busy day but starting here was worth it. We went there around 8:30 am it is not yet open but they opened for us. There's really not much to see though so it's only for a few minutes that we stayed. If you just wanted to feel the cowboy place and some mangrove forest its a place to see.
    We enjoyed picture taking at the mangrove forest it feels fresh and calming. We were not able to go deeper into the forest since we are on a time constraint schedule.
    There is also a horse riding area where you may rent their horse. We didn't try since its still to early and the horses are still at the barn during that time plus the clock is ticking as we just finished enjoying the view.

    This place can be considered a must visit if you have plenty of time in Kota Kinabalu but if not, you may skip and move on to Kinabalu park and Desa Farm where you would more likely enjoy best. :-)

    We, a group of seniors in the sixties, had a very exciting experience in White Water Rafting @ Kiulu River, Tuaran of Sabah. The Water is crystal clear and the environment is serene and cooling. The rafting activity was rather challenging for us, but nevertheless we had overcome all the obstacles we faced throughout the journey . Bravo!
