North Borneo Railway Steam Train, KK
Went onto the North Borneo Railway Steam Train for the 1st time.
The train only operates on every Wednesday and Saturday. It is priced at RM250 per person (without land transfer to and from the Tanjung Aru Railway Station unless you are staying at Sutera Pacific Hotel or Sutera Magellan Resort, you will have complimentary return transfer to the Railway Station)
Although the 1st impression was that the cost is really expensive to go up the train for few hours ride. But once we have experience it, we realised it is value for money, of course, it also depends how much you appreciate what North Borneo Railway has to offer.
The experience of an unforgettable journey down the memory lane with the steam train, sights, sounds and smell (smoke) is just not to be missed. Some of you especially the locals might prefer to go on the train without a Tour guide, but if you are a tourists and wish to understand better on the history of North Borneo Railway and what can be found in the 2 small town that we stopped at, I highly recommend hiring a knowledgeable tour guide / engaging a travel agency for this tour.
