Matta Fair Sabah Package
Sabah Travel Packages at Matta Fair are best purchased during the travel fair in Kuala Lumpur, and the reason for this is that during this travel fair, the tour operators would have special prices for the many packages to Sabah.

At the Matta Fair, you can find all kinds of Sabah packages ranging from city, adventure and island packages catered to suit those who prefer the individual package.

Sabah Travel Packages at Matta Fair

As people seem to be heading to Sabah Borneo due to the many affordable flights from various cities around Southeast Asia, flying in and out is quick and easy and most travelers would purchase their own air tickets.

Then, they would opt for the ground packages to move around in Sabah as it is much easier. If you are a single traveler or couple, the ground packages are the best to get.

However, if you are traveling with you parents or in a large group, it is better to inquire about the full packages that include transport, rooms and flights.

Below are some of the most popular Sabah Travel Packages offered during the Matta Fair.   

Kota Kinabalu Package 3D/2N Free and Easy

Maliau Basin Package 3D/2N Jungle Adventure

Maliau Basin is one of the most sought after adventure packages in Sabah Borneo with very few people visiting this Lost World of Sabah.

Even our Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak made a recent visit to Maliau Basin early in 2011 and was the first prime minister of Malaysia to visit this unexplored place.

The experience you will have here is a land transfer all the way to the south of the basin where you will continue with Sabah Park Rangers and Guide to the initial base camp and over night here.

While here, trek to one of the beautiful waterfalls of Maliau Basin through the rugged rainforest seeing the many flora and fauna offered here.

A medium level trek which is no more than an hour and suitable for most ages. After all, you can say 'I've been to Maliau Basin' after taking this incredible trip of a lifetime. All meals are provided throughout in most packages.

For the serious trekker or adventure lover, Maliau Basin requires a minimum of 7 to 12 days to fully explore this area.

As I visit ever Matta Fair in Kuala Lumpur, I make it a point to constantly check what are some of the new tourism products for Sabah.

Over the years, there have been quite a number of new products, and they are gaining popularity among the local travelers.

Usually at the Sabah Tourism booth, there will be around 20 to 30 different tour operators promoting various types of Sabah travel packages, so you just need to see which one attracts you.
