A Beautiful Sunset in Kota Kinabalu

A couple enjoys the radiant colors of a sunset, as it illuminates the vast South China Sea.

After traveling around the world for one year and living a year in Taipei, Taiwan, we decided to travel around Southeast Asia for 3 months. The first destination we went to was Kota Kinabalu in Borneo, Malaysia. It was while strolling near the city’s pier that I took the photograph of this beautiful sunset. It was one of the most beautiful sunsets, I had ever seen. I loved seeing the reflection of the sunset in the water. Where have you seen the most beautiful sunset?

A Slice of Paradise: Malaysia’s Perhentian Islands



The Perhentian Islands near Malaysia’s northeast coast are a slice of heavenly paradise. These are photos of long beach on Perhentian Kecil, the smaller of the two Perhentian islands. Long beach was mostly popular among the backpacking crowd due to the cheap accommodations and nightlife. The sand was soft, and the water was turquoise blue with excellent visibility. The water was perfect for swimming.


This is the bungalow we rented during our stay at the beach. Although the accommodations were not luxurious, the location was excellent. We were literally on the beach. During our stay here, we encountered this monitor lizard that occasionally would crawl under our bungalow. As of now, Long beach at Perhentian Kecil has been our favorite beach in Malaysia.
