I agree. Api Tours is an excellent company. Likely your best bet.

I also know Chris Lo, who used to work for Api Tours, and formed his own company later. Pretty sure if he still does his own tours, - but if he is available as a guide, I highly recommend him.

Travel Tips for Kota Kinabalu

Bring your Ringit

by presdeaddead

Due to the small size of the airport at Kota Kinabalu, it is best to make sure that you have enough currency in your pocket as there is no foreign exchange booth. At least have 20ringit spare, as this will cover your taxi into town. I had come directly from Bangkok on Air Asia and had no currency with me at the time of arrival. The taxi driver charged me an extra 5 ringit for stopping off at the cash machine.

things u need

by blacksnail

Glove (water resist with good grip if possible)
Shoes
Although sports shoes are acceptable, hiking shoes with good grip is an advantage. Need not be waterproof. i brought spare shoes.
Thick sports socks with toe support. i wore 2 socks all the way. Bring at least 1 spare sock in case of rain.
Raincoat with hood and knee length.
Knee I ankle guard
Hat / cap. To shield from drizzle and sunlight near mountain top. Lip balm — air at the summit is dry. Some people use them.
Sun block (at least 30 SPF). Small bottle - needed for descend from 13,300 to 5,000 feet Kinabalu base camp. Use spray type for even coverage and easy application.

Beach Run

by runwitme

I love running. I found Tanjung Aru Beach is a great place to do beach running. I did my running in the morning about 6-7am. The tide was low at this time.

The weather was cool. I started from Shangri-la Tanjung Aru and worked my way up to the airport on the other end of the beach and back.

I passed the a golf club, Prince Philip Park and KK Traffic Garden along the way.

The beach is quite flat and the sand are not loose, making it easier to run.

Do wear shoes to protect your feet from rubbish. Running vest and shoes. Sunglasses.

Menara Tun Mustapha (Yayasan Sabah)

by yipsufen

With its unique architectural design, this 32-floor goverment office building is arguably one of the city's most outstanding landmarks. For sweeping views of Likas Bay and its mesmerising sunset, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Kokol Hill & Mount Kinabalu in a distance on clear day, head up to @mosphere, the modern dining restaurant on the 18th floor.

A very quiet place. Nothing much to see except you want to pay a visit to @mosphere Restaurant. The restaurant is nice though.

Open: Tuesday to Sunday from 9am to 6pm. Closed on Monday, except during school & public holidays.

Weaving Handicrafts

by yipsufen

Some of the popular shops are Borneo Craft, Borneo Treasures, Kadaiku, Sabah Handicraft Centre, The Borneo Trading Post, etc. Or you can find them in Gaya Sunday market, which basically sells everything. Pencil case, handphone pouch, coin pouch, purse etc. RM10 for 3 items.
