RANAU: Visitors in Sabah can now send their postcards to family and friends anywhere in the world from a tree house!

The service, which had its soft launch yesterday, is available at Sabah Tea Resort here.

Its general manager Ismail Martin Kong Abdullah said the Tree House at the resort was opened to public on Feb 19 this year.

The new attraction in the Kundasang-Ranau tourism had since attracted more than 8,000 visitors and over 90,000 hits on social media.

“Here, they can buy a postcard from the gift shop or at Tree House ticket counter, write their greetings, place it into the mailbox, and it will be posted to any address for them.

“It is RM3 per card to any address in Malaysia, and RM5 per card to all international destinations,” he told the New Straits Times.

Ismail added that the Tree House is 10 metres above the ground and can accommodate over 10 adults.

He said the structure, which is perfect for taking scenic photos and videos, is made up of an event platform, a mini canopy walk, and a tree condominium.

Besides the tree house, there are also several mailboxes located at unusual places in Sabah which only climbers or divers could go to.


Among them include Malaysia’s first underwater mailbox placed on the front of an old sunken cargo ship off Mataking island in Semporna in March 2006; another one was installed in February 2015 at the Pendant Hut of Mount Kinabalu with the elevation of 3,289 metres above sea level; and at 40-metres deep, a seabed mailbox was launched off Layang-Layang island in August 2015.
