Travelling from Kota Kinabalu City to Kinabalu National Park? Here’s how to do it on the cheap!

Go to Merdeka Field (Padang Merdeka) at Kota Kinabalu city centre and take a mini van or taxi to Ranau.

These depart regularly from 7am-5pm, RM15-25/pax. If there’s 4 of you, jump in a taxi as it’s much faster.

It takes about 2 hours to get to Kinabalu National Park and you can ask your bus driver to drop you near your accommodation.

We stayed at Kinabalu Mountain Lodge (1km before Kinabalu National Park), which is basic accommodation with beautiful views.
