Our friends from Peninsular Malaysia are always surprised to find that Sabahans are fond of Tea break and high tea too. Besides asking our friends to go Yamcha (drink tea). Sabahans would say ‘Let’s go High-Tea’. Tea drinking is definitely part of our culture and it fits well into our laid back lifestyle. Located 2,272 feet above sea levels, the harvests are 100% pesticide free as insect are drawn towards the 130 million year old rainforest surrounding the plantation. Afterwards head towards to the World World II Memorial Site also known as Kundasang War Memorial by the locals. The scent of Roses lingers in the air and the serene atmosphere makes the Kundasang War Memorial an ideal place to contemplate and remember the heroes of the war.Description
The journey will start with a 2.5 hour drive from your Kota Kinabalu city hotel to Sabah Tea Plantation passing through the highlands of Kundasang, Ranau. Enjoy the scenic countryside views and its fresh air. The tea plantation is surrounded by pristine rainforests in the cool mountain air and is the only organic tea farm in Borneo and one of the few in the world. Take a tour around the tea plantation and enjoy a local lunch with the beautiful views of the plantation. Established in 1962, it was one of the first memorials to commemorate the brave Australian and British Prisoners of War who died in Sandakan and during the infamous death marches to Ranau During World War II. The memorial also remembers the people of North Borneo who risked their lives to help the POWs. The Memorial is made up of four beautiful gardens – the Australian Garden, the English Garden, the Borneo Garden and the Contemplation Garden and Pool – to represent the different nationalities. Visitors can also opt to view a brief video on the history of the Sandakan Death March. This tour concludes with the return trip to Kota Kinabalu, and drop-off at your hotel.Highlights
