You don't need to agonise over the restaurant menu when you're in Ranau. Dive straight in and try some of the area's signature dishes, such as pinasakan sada (braised fish with fruit) and hinava (seasoned raw mackerel).
Don't let any cultural barriers get in the way of a good time! Make your trip to Sabah a more satisfying one by learning a few phrases in the local tongue. "Khabar baik, terima kasih. Anda pula bagaimana?" may be very handy. It's how you say "fine thanks, and you?" One more to keep in mind is "Selamat hari jadi / Selamat hari lahir", meaning "happy birthday".
