Weather in Mid October - Advice Please

Hi There, we are considering a visit to KK in mid October this year to celebrate a special birthday.

We would probably stay in the Tanjung Aru after looking at feedback on the site and given its a lot closer to other amenities than its sister hotel.

Our only concern is the possibility of poor weather (especially rain) during our stay (15-23 Oct) we don't mind a daily shower but would hate to be caught in the middle of heavy daily downpours!!

Are we still likely to get a tan and spend some long peiods relaxing by a pool or on the beach?

Should I book the trip or consider coming in the dry season next year?

Hope you can help, Regards, k8rew.

It was some years ago so things may have changed, but the Tanjung Rasa Ria Hotel was fabulous and worth a couple of nights just to experience the Orang-a-tangs on the site and the beach!. Also stayed at Tanjung Aru which was completely different with only a small man made beach but much nearer the 'town'. Also had a couple of nights at the Hyatt - fabulous views. Even having travelled extensively since, this is still my favourite holiday! L.

Hi k8rew,

Weather is currently unpredictable in Sabah.

But i can assure you that it won't be raining whole day.

Normally it rains about an hour or two then it stops, then Mr. Sunshine will be back at work. Not to worry bout not getting tanned, you'll for sure get a good one. I could get my skin tanned just walking around the town for 30mins-1hour.

Beach.. STAR isn't a good choice. But if you are looking for location convenience, then STAR is a good choice.
