For the adventurer who wants to see as much of Sabah as possible (and in two weeks, no less!) but doesn't want to summit Mt Kinabalu, this is your opportunity. Go for a dip in the awe-inspiring Wind and Clearwater caves of Gunung Mulu National Park. Opt to go snorkelling on the island haven of Pulau Tiga. Get up close and personal with the orangutans at a rehabilitation centre (selfie time!). Really though, you want Sabah? It's waiting for you.
