Kota Kinabalu is one of the fastest growing cities in Malaysia and is a fabulous option for an adventurous family vacation.

On arrival to Kota Kinabalu, your first afternoon is yours at leisure. As Kota Kinabalu is a food lover’s paradise, indulge yourself in some of the local and fresh seafood.

The following morning you’ll set out to Tanjung Aru and ride the historical North Borneo steam train. Enjoy the views of rainforests, paddy fields and rubber plantations that the train rolls past as we make a stop at Kinarut and Papar Town and visit the local market town. On your way back to Tanjung Aru, enjoy a delicious tiffin-style lunch while gazing out of the window.

The next morning, you’ll visit the smallest island of the five closest to Kota Kinabalu, Pulau Mamutik. Here you can enjoy a BBQ lunch on the shore, have a leisurely swim or even snorkel in the clear waters and see the colourful marine life which Sabah is famous for.

Your last day is a free day. Perhaps cycle through the city and enjoy the breath-taking coastal view before returning home.
