"Pimp my Kampung" Kampong Pimping by Pieter11

Kampong Pimping Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 26 photos

Different but Great!

A visit to Kampung Pimping is not really one of tourist top 3 destinations when they visit the wonderful State of Sabah. And not even top 10 or top 20 either. Kampung Pimping is definitely an "Off the Beaten Path" destination.

But nevertheless it's a great way to see the real Sabah. See the real Kampung-life, the real people and the real beauty of the state. Don't expect a 5-star resort here, or even an hotel, but like everywhere in Sabah, it's not difficult to find food and you'll be welcomed by people like you don't experience often.

Kampung Pimping is a part of the larger community of Membakut, between Kota Kinabalu and Beaufort. It's situated between the North Borneo Railway and the coastline of the island. Close to the "citycentre" you can find the Kampung's own beach: Pantai Pimping. For the rest the town is mostly surrounded by padi fields, palm trees and banana trees.
