Tanjung Aru Beach

Tanjung Aru Beach is a public beach in Kota Kinabalu. When I was there to pass the time before going to the airport, I saw families and a group of young people having picnic, children playing, kite and ice cream ambulant vendors, and people waiting for the sunset. Some ladies, presumably tourists, dramatically posed for photos with the sunset as background.

Welcome/Goodbye Road Arch

A welcome (or goodbye) road arch depending which side of the road you are on is common throughout the country. Some have creatures on it like the carabao, while this one in Lian has a balsa (hut on a bamboo raft). I think this represents those picnic hut rafts that you see floating on Lian’s beaches.
