Sembulan River Park - Part I

The first phase of the beautification project along Sembulan River consists of Parcel 1, Parcel 2 and Parcel 3 stretching from Petronas HQ and Wisma Muis to UMNO building near the Cosatal Highway.

This pictures are taken from the completed Parcel 1 and part of Parcel 3. The park spans from the bridge near Accurate Weight to the compound of Oceania Hotel in Sadong Jaya and the Indonesian Council building across the river.

The river prior to the beautification project. It was badly polluted and rubbish were strewn everywhere. I 'photoshopped' it to remove the unsightly floats.

Sembulan River Park was officially opened by Sabah Chief Minister, Datuk Musa Hj Aman in June 2012.

Track for walking and jogging

Riverside facing Kg Sembulan

Plenty of vegetation and trees to shade you from the scorching sun

Great Egret resting on the tree. Be careful, they are quite generous with their droppings

Beverly Hotel is just nearby, although not directly connected to this riverside walk.

Quite a number of them flying around, so, you can try panning your camera

Enjoy your walk.

Mount Kinabalu seen from places

Mount Kinabalu is one of the highest peaks in Southeast Asia. It is visible from almost everywhere in the West Coast of Sabah.

Depending on the location you are looking at it from, you will be able to see the south and north peaks, with the southern face being the most commonly captured on camera by visitors.

For the love of wide-angle-view, I'll share this one, taken infront of a fisherman village near Mengkabong Bridge, Tuaran.
