Where are the places you should travel to in Sabah in 2021?


What is the best time to visit Sabah?
The best time to visit Sabah is pretty much all year round, although August and September are the best season to visit the beaches along the east coast while October to November is the best time to visit Kota Kinabalu in the west as it tends to be a lot drier around this time of year.

iii. Travelers who have been denied entry into Malaysia will be directed to the respective airlines to be repatriated.

9. Malaysian citizens are exempted from this ruling. Malaysian citizens who wish to return to Malaysia, including from the countries listed above, may do so provided they have a Travel Notice issued by the Embassy and a Letter of Undertaking to bear the costs of quarantine upon arrival.
