About Kota Kinabalu

The starting point for adventure

Once seen just as the starting point for tours to Mt Kinabalu or the Kinabatangan jungle, Kota Kinabalu has rightfully come into its own. And it's no wonder, with the city's friendly locals, relaxed pace of life, astounding scenery on the doorstep and delicious seafood. Time has its own meaning in Kota Kinabalu, where days can be lazily spent shopping at one of the many markets (choose from the central, handicraft or night markets), walking along the coast or even catching a boat out to the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park for a spot of island hopping. 

And if you choose to venture further afield, a soak at the Poring Hot Springs and taking in the views of Mt Kinabalu are well worth the while, as is exploring the indigenous cultures at the Mari Mari Cultural Village, for once you visit these, you'll realise just how unique Malaysian Borneo truly is.
