2nd step- go to semporna by bus or flight. if using flight you just arive at tawau so you need to take taxi or mini bus to go to semporna.
we choose 'manis express' as our transportation because it is the only company that can give us discount.haha.
3rd step- go to uncle chang office (just beside dragon inn the floating resort) and fill in some form.
in front of their office. prepare to be burn by sun so dont forget your sun block!!
4th step- they will bring you to mabul using speed boat.
1 hour in boat from semporna to mabul. you can cuci mata looking at the orang putih.haha :D
5th step- arrive at mabul.you can fuel up your energy first with their breakfast meal. and then you can make decision whether you want to snokeling at mabul island, kapalai island, mataking island. if you want to go to other island you need to pay extra but if you just stay at mabul (like us) it is also ok and it is still worth. you just to rent their snokeling gear and they will bring you to at least 2 spot of snokeling place.
the scene that you can see. this picture is not very clear. excuse my camera for being not too clear.
