Village Water Houses (Rumah atas Air) in Kota Kinabalu Sabah, Malaysia

A view of the houses

I went to Kota Kinabalu earlier this month and visited this place where there are houses above the water. I have been told that people living in this area had been around for quite some time. Most of them are not well to do.

View from water

Most of the houses are made of half plank and half concrete.

Plank made Walkways

I am so glad that you are taking these breathtaking images. I think Malaysia can be very picturesque and it is often unappreciated by Malaysians themselves sometimes? I don't know.

Still, thanks for sharing those images. Greatly appreciated.

csc: thanx for liking them :P
actually it's not really easy to take these shots. my friend told me that it could be dangerous as in ppl might not be friendly when approached.

I wondered about that. You did take pictures of people and they were picture perfect. They could easily be in some travel magazine.

Ahh... You did snap them secretly!
