Getting there & away
Minivans and share-taxis gather in front of Pasar Besar, the old market. Most of these serve the Kota Belud–KK route, (RM5, two hours) or Kudat (RM10, two hours), departing between 7am and 5pm. On Sunday, tamu day, the number of vehicles has to be seen to be believed!
To get to Kinabalu National Park, take any minibus going to KK and get off at Tamparuli, about halfway (RM5, 30 minutes). There are several minivans from Tamparuli to Ranau every day until about 2pm, all of them passing the park entrance (RM5, one hour). To go all the way to Ranau costs RM8.
