    Stop At: Cocoa Kingdom, No. 1 Lorong Bunga Telur A, Kota Kinabalu Malaysia

    Cocoa Kingdom which was previously known as Simply Chocolate has been in Sabah for 10 years. It is located in Tanjung Aru, Kota Kinabalu which is only 15 minutes from city centre. The place is heaven for the chocolate lovers and they have varieties of chocolate for you to choose.

    You can witness how wonderful the process of making chocolate as they installed transparent glass for everyone to see. Basic ingredients and steps of processing cocoa are also put on an open space for everyone to learn.

    There is a chocolate tasting to get the taste of it before you are planning to buy. If you are bringing kids, well that is even better as Cocoa Kingdom has a hall for chocolate decorating activities and you can even take away the personally decorated chocolates.

    The price is reasonable and it is a place for you to visit while being in Sabah.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Another great trip by TYH Borneo Tours! It was a long drive to the wetlands but overall worthwhile. The bad weather didn't ruin our experience either. We got the opportunity to purchase ponchos before we went onto the boat. The boatman knew exactly where the monkeys were and

    The tour at Weston was just as advertised and very prompt. The guide was informative and helpful. There were plenty of chances to take photos. The monkeys were neat, but I think the ambiance of the wetlands and fishing village and sunset were actually more beautiful. The

    We really enjoyed this tour. It is a long drive but worthwhile. We were able to see several groups of monkeys before dinner. The sunset was absolutely breathtaking. After eating, we went back out on the boat to see the fireflies. The fireflies floating towards us was like

    This tour in the Weston wetlands was well worth the two and a half hour drive from central Kota Kinabalu. Our driver Eddy-John was very friendly and knowledgeable, with very good English, and the boat tour enabled us to see the proboscis monkeys and fire flies up close in their

    Myself and my partner went on this trip to Weston whilst staying at the Nexus resort. We were lead by Eddie John and I can honestly say it was the most fantastic experience. We saw plenty of monkeys, in their natural environment, and the fireflies were incredible. The food is
