During the last school holiday,my family and Iwent to a little known paradise on the Island of Borneo.We spent a wonderful vacation at Tanjung Simpang Mengayau,a cape in the nothermost tip of Borneo. We met our guide in Kota Kinabalu and he took us by four wheel drive car.And it tooks us about 30 minutes to the cape.The road we took had potholes and was uneven but suprisingly it was a smooth ride because our guide was an exellent driver when it comes on rough road.Mid way on our journey we notice a giant broze globe.We get down from the car and did some exploring and read about the history of the place as well how it got it's name. After that we walk down a few steps and stand on the nothermost tip of Borneo.We enjoy the fresh breeze and saw water splashing few meters away from where we are standing.We also saw an island at the distance and there was a lighthouse on it.An hour later, our guide drove us to the hotel and we had scumtuous meal and went bed immideatly due to fatigue.The next morning,we spent our day at white sandy beaches neaar the hotel.We also went snorkelling and swam in the crystal clear water.The corals were beautiful and the fish swamp up to our goggles.The underwater was extrmly breathtaking and it was really a wonderful and unforgetabble experiece.The following day our guide took us to the nearby fishing village.A fisherman on a boat ride along the coast.Then he taugt us how to catch some fish but they were very tiny so we therew them back into the sea.Soon it was afternoon the sun shining brigthly and we return to the hotel to fill our tummies and take some rest. On the final day, our guide took us to the sourveniers store along the road there.The woman manning the store sold beautiful handcraft.My parents bought a few sourveniers for relative and i bought some for my best friend too.Later our guide drove us to the airport so that we could catch a flight to Kuala Lumpur.
