about 5 hours. The ride by railcar through the Padas River gorge to Tenom is particularly interesting

CUSTOMS AND COURTESY

 - Islam is the official religion in both Malaysia and Brunei. Proper dress and manners should be adhered
to at all times. Before entering a mosque, visitors should remove their shoes  and women should ensure
their head, knees and arms are covered. They should not pass in front of people at prayer, and should
not touch the Quaran.

 - It is impolite to point with your index finger(use the right thumb instead) or to beckon someone with 
fingers and palm facing upwards. Instead the whole hand should be waved with palm facing
downwards. Gifts, particularly food, are passed with the right hand.
