From Singapore to KK (Kota Kinabalu). You can take a flight from Singapore (Changi). I think there is a direct flight to KK from Singapore. If not, then you will need to transit at KL before going to KK. If you want a cheaper price, go Senai airport at Johor. Currently, only AirAsia flies to KK from JB (direct).

Getting to Kota Kinabalu from Singapore is relatively easy. Just cross over to Johor (plenty of buses, but if you want to beat the traffic, go with the cab), Malaysia and straight to the airport. You can purchase a round trip AirAsia flight for quite a reasonable price. You can also fly into KK from Singapore, but I'm quite sure it'll cost more compared to flying from Johor.

When in KK, there are plenty of licensed companies offering day trip scuba dives around the islands off KK as well as the infamous Sipadan, Mabul and Kapalai islands off Semporna. Whatever your interests may be, KK has many things for you to do.

Have a great journey!

It all depands on your budget you can fly direct from sing to kota kinabalu...Silk air and Malaysian iarlines fly in weekly but not cheap airasia is the cheapest but need to go through JB.

Diving in sipadan is the best however all agent who do diving in sipadan will have to get you a permite to enter the dive site,..which cost RM40.00 per day most dive resort offer 3 boat dive and unlimited jetty or shaw dive. Do the South point and wall dive dive resort...Borneo Divers ( Pioneer odf Sipdan diving and one of the cheapest, Kapalai and Mabul check those website on Dive sipadan. Do you have friends in Sabah..??? Reply to this
