If you want to reach a destination fast or move between a few remote places of interest in the shortest time, hiring a taxi will be your best option. You can always find taxi stand next to major hotels, shopping malls and bus terminals. To identify a taxi, keep a lookout for the word “Teksi”, “Teksi Bermeter” or “Kereta Sewa”. Hotels could also arrange taxis for their guests upon request. Taxi services are available at Sabah airports.
