Welcome to Trip Advisor.

Have a look at top questions on the riht hand side of the page and Travel Guide and things to do on the left of the page. Lots of information there.

Lankan Syabas is near Kinurat and a bout 1/2 to 1 hr drive from Kota Kinabalu, depending on traffic. Not a place I would like to spend 3 weeks. Taxi cost to and from the Airport and in Kota Kinabalu can add up. The is public transpot to and from Kinurat but I don't know about its reliability but cost would be cheap as is most public transpot in Sabah.

I would suggest the best way to get around would be a hire car. Try Kinabulu Car renatl of Mountain Rent a cars.

For tour Companies see sabahtourism.com/sabah-malaysian-borneo/en/.

If you have further questions please ask.

I am with bigw,it is not recommended to stay at Langkah Syabas Resort for the whole 3 weeks. The resort is pretty far away from town,refer to bigw's reply.

Maybe you could split your holiday,maybe a week at Langkah Syabas & the remaining time in town. You can choose to stay at a backpacker for about RM25 a night or a 2 stars hotel for about RM130 a night.

spending whole 3 weeks at langkah syabas is too much.. unless u stay near the city center, transportation can be a pain.. perhaps renting a car and visit all the tourist attractions around kk or sabah? you can try rent a car online at http://kinabalucarrental.com ... or perhaps contact the tour companies and see what they have to offer..

If you've already booked your hotel, I would suggest you to rent a car, as others have suggested. I found that it's not cheap to hire a taxi in Sabah. A couple of taxi rides a day to/from your hotel can quickly add up.

We stayed in KK and still ended up renting a car to explore around.
