“There have been publications on Kinabalu Park from easy-to-read brochures to everyday guide books and massive coffee table books. This condensed version of a pictorial guide and travel book is an excellent endeavor to highlight the best of Kinabalu Park through stunning images and candid descriptions.
I would like to express my thanks to the photographer and publisher of “The Best of Kinabalu Park” for taking this initiative to show not only the best but also the unexplored and rarely seen images of this amazing nature reserve and its stand out feature, Mount Kinabalu.
Tourism has always been a mainstay of Sabah’s economy and it is important to keep it fresh and exciting to encourage more visitors with the diverse interests to come here. Photography is one aspect that we can take advantage of as Sabah is blessed with an abundance of captivating features such as its geographical landscape, biodiversity, people and cultures.
With 160 pages of high-quality photographs, this book is a fantastic resources to appreciate the splendour of Kinabalu Park and its natural features. It would also be a much valued gift to inspire the inner photographer and traveller in you.”
John also presented to the Minister a 5 feet wide print personally selected by YB Datuk Masidi of the Mesilau River which was captured before the earthquake on June 5th this year. John also briefed the Tourism Minister of his current projects which included the documentation of the changed landscapes of Mount Kinabalu after the June 5th earthquake.
