Malaysians will no longer have to travel all the way to Bali to feel like they're hanging off the edge of the world

Nestled near the peak of Kokol Hill in Menggatal, Sabah is a picturesque spot overlooking the city of Kota Kinabalu

Having opened its doors to the public just a few months ago, Le' One Kokol Elf has been getting quite a bit of attention on social media for its Insta-worthy attractions as well as its amazing view of the city. 

In its surrounding areas on Kokol Hill are resorts, restaurants, and guesthouses that have popped out over the past few years. 

At the heart of Kokol Elf is the aforementioned Mega Swing a.k.a. the "Bali Swing of Sabah"

It can be a little scary to swing out into the abyss, but it sure is a fantastic photo op! 

If you'd rather relax and chill with nature, take a break at the Sunset Catcher area and enjoy the view in any of the nest-like day beds

Pro-tip: Time your visit so you'll get to catch the sunset!

If you're a fan of teddy bears, you'll want to stop by the Bear's Pillow Hut for a shot or two with the cute plushies and the giant Rilakkuma

It also doubles up as an event space!
