lets pack ....
I am looking forward to diving every day. As the world's top ten dive sites, Spartan is very wonderful underwater. In addition to the beautiful beaches, it is more exciting than his underwater world. It is suitable for diving all year round.
The 5m shoal here is a deep blue sea that falls 600 to 700 meters vertically. It is known as the "Mecca of the Mecca" and the "Aquarium of God" of the world's divers. The father of the world diving, Jacques-Yves Cousteau called it a work of art that has never been violated.
There are some wonders that divers can't miss. There are thousands of sea fish intensively forming a fish hurricane. The submarines who want to see the oversized fish and turtles must also come here.
Sipadan is also known for its unique "turtle". "Turtle" refers to a place where many sea turtles who are unfortunately lost because of their lost lives. Their remains are hidden in caves and passages under the sea, forming a magical maze.
From Tawau to Deyuan Coco Manor, about 45 minutes. Here you can learn more about Coco's production process, visit the Coco House, and a 75-foot waterfall and columnar basalt with 27,000 years of history.
All trips need to be booked in advance, with a professional guide to lead the tour. You must wear suitable shoes in the waterfall area. You will see many small waterfalls along the way. The trails will grow like moss because of the long-term flow of water. It is very slippery. Try not to step on it. Bring anti-mosquito and sunscreen. At the end of the
trail there is a column of stones, they are basalt stones 27,000 years ago. Basalt is a dense or foamy structure of rock that is solidified by the volcanic eruption of magma. In this gorge, they record the volcanic movements of the earth many years ago and have to sigh the wonders of nature.
So I suggest that you go to the waterfall area and try not to go down to the water pool. There will be water scorpions (grasshoppers) to suck blood, or wear foot-up shoes.
Everyone has been hungry from the waterfall, and the staff has prepared meals for everyone. Every dish here uses cocoa as raw material, cocoa noodles, cocoa banana rolls, cocoa shrimp rolls, cocoa jelly and so on. Of course, my best thing is still cocoa. They say that cocoa is generally not eaten directly, and is processed into a drink or chocolate. The boss opened a cocoa fruit for us to try. In fact, the taste is very similar to that of mangosteen. It will feel a touch of chocolate in the mouth, but it is the sweetness of the fruit. The estate also has an observation deck that is ideal for taking pictures.
After a day's journey, we finally arrived in Tawau Town. Although this is just a transit point to Semporna, we decided to stay here for a day and take a break. Promenade Hotel Chinese is the Tawau Kaicheng Hotel. It takes about half an hour to drive from the airport. The tour guide told us that it is the tallest building in Tawau.
The exterior of the hotel is very stylish and has an underground car park. It is usually necessary to check in at 2 pm, and if you arrive in advance, you can leave your luggage at the front desk for free. The concealment of the hotel is very good, the elevator needs to brush the room card to reach the room floor. The hotel can also book a massage service. Next to the hotel is a small shopping mall, there is a supermarket on the first floor, snacks, shampoo, shower gel and other daily necessities can be bought, very convenient.
Our room is facing the sea and the space is very spacious. The room is central air conditioning, wifi signal is good. The bedding is clean and comfortable, there is a TV at the end of the bed, and the bed has a socket and a light control switch, which is very convenient. There is a wardrobe in the room and there is no safe. Two free bottles of mineral water are provided daily. The bathroom is very clean, the bathroom is separate, there is a bath product with a simple fit and a toothpaste toothbrush, and a hair dryer.
Although the hotel is not luxurious, the facilities are relatively simple, but in a small town like Tawau, the price and comfort of such a spacious and comfortable hotel is already very high. Located on the 7th floor of the hotel, the
restaurant offers Western and Malay-style buffets. The outdoor balcony has a wide view and is a great place to watch the sunset.
Semporna is located in eastern Malaysia, on the east coast of Sabah, a county in the province of Tawau in Sabah. Once a small fishing village, it has developed into a world-famous diving and island resort due to its high-quality marine tourism resources. I have heard friends mention Semporna more than once, it is an almost obsessive intoxication and obsession. Now, I am lying on my bed, thinking of the sea, I can't help but be intoxicated. In Spartan and Malay, Semporna means "perfect". The town is surrounded by sea water, and Semporna and its affiliated islands are like an island of dreams in the real world. Pure white sand beaches, coconut trees and the calm, turquoise waters of the Sulawesi Sea glides through the colorful reefs.
The water house we live in is called the Sipadan Water House, and the water house is charged by the head. Passing through the wooden path leading to the coast, the floating foot building is a bit awkward, the air is filled with white sand and the barbecue smoke. The children usually play barefoot and play in the fine sand of the white sand. The women lean on their own floating feet to chat or look after the children. Some people simply live directly on the ship floating on the sea, taking the boat as their home, and the boat top is covered with a colorful laundry. There are also holiday homes on the island. The most important function of these holiday homes is not accommodation, but to lead the tourists to dive. The most pleasant time of the day is on the lounge chairs of the water house. Look at the sky and the sky to see the sun rising and falling, watching the sea snakes, starfish, crabs, and colorful fish free to watch the tide rise and fall, as if people and The sea has been connected, giving me a lounge chair and I thought it was a paradise.
Sipadan is known as the world's "seashore diving", but also the world's top five cliff diving - 5 meters of shoal is a vertical deep blue and deep 600 to 700 meters deep. It is due to volcanic movements, and the submarine land mass is formed by erecting from the sea depth of 2000 meters, and thus has unique conditions. Like Mecca in the eyes of pilgrims, Sabah's Sipadan is like a paradise in the eyes of divers. In order to protect the island, the government implements a permit system on the island. There are only 120 places on the island every day, and 90% of the places are in the hands of various resorts. The Spartan Platform Extreme Dive Resort has 10 places every day. Go diving in Spartan. If you want to go to the island, you need to report the basic information in advance, and you need to register information after going to the island.
From the far and near Mabul Island, the Spartan Platform Extreme Dive Resort next to it is becoming more and more clear, and the excitement in the heart is inevitable. Get to the bottom of the platform, how to face such a high platform? Only through the simple electric lifting platform, the lifting platform does not have any protective devices, because they also jump directly from this diving, so it is impossible to install protective devices. As the elevator slowly rose, we finally came to the legendary Spartan Platform Extreme Dive Resort. The staff standing on both sides of the uniform costumes gave us a warm welcome, helped with the luggage and asked us to have lunch first. The resort fee includes three meals a day, afternoon tea and so on. Start at 8:00 every day, lunch starts at 12 o'clock, dinner starts at 7 o'clock, and afternoon tea is at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Drinks, milk, mineral water, and pudding are all available 24 hours a day. In the hot summer, how can there be no ice cream, there is also ice cream supply here, directly to the front desk, then the money will be recorded in the account, leaving it together to settle, it is super convenient. The first floor of the platform is mainly a public area, which is mainly divided into diving equipment area, cafeteria and leisure area, and office.
Sipadan is like Mecca in the eyes of pilgrims. Sabah in Sabah is like a paradise in the eyes of divers.
In the ranking of diving resorts in the past half century, Sipadan has always ranked among the top ten in the world. If you dive here, you will find that the dive site will not take more than 10 minutes, and you will swim through the 5-meter shoal, which is the blue ocean with a vertical drop of 600 to 700 meters.
