Step back in time aboard the North Borneo Railways

Departing twice weekly, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the ride, a joint project between Sutera Harbor Resort and Sabah State Railway Department, transports you from Kota Kinabalu to Papar, stopping midway over the traditional shops and attractions at Kinarut Town. Not only that, but the day trip also includes a complimentary breakfast once you board, and a classic tiffin lunch on the return trip filled with local dishes everyone loves. Surely, this trip back in time will top all your other travels, won't it?
