KK Trip for Solo Traveller

I am planning a solo trip to KK end of the year or Jan 2014.

Is it a good time to go?

Can recommend a good hotel with excellent views of Mount K and easy access to local food and culture.

planning a 4N stay minimum with a trek up Mt K if possible.

End of Jan 2014 isn't a good time,its Chinese New Year,it js.also a super peak season for Sabah. You'll need to pay extra accommodation.

If you are looking for hotels with good view of Mt. Kinabalu,check out Grand Borneo Hotel,Novotel or Courtyard.

I am interested in what you find as I plan to go Feb 2014 to Sabah and Sarawak. I do photography, animals & birds but not treking.

The person who comments on dates is correct. There are some peak seasons in that time frame.

So far I am looking at Borneo Eco Tours who has a variety to offer and is well presented on the internet. There is usually a minmum of 2 people
