Also another "must visit" island located at Tunku Abdul Rahman Park. Sapi Island good for snorkelling, a lot of coral can be tru clear water around the island.
There is a hill next to the city (I can't remember the name) where you can drive up and have a nice view of the city.
You can visit the Likas suburb of Kota Kinabalu which is famous for its soccer stadium as the soccer team is quite strong in Malaysia. I happened to stay with my friend whose house is located there.
Take to the water front around 6pm, grab yourself a drink and wait.
Only one word needed to describe the sunsets here.....Stunning!!!!
When in KK, do climb Mt KK. The journey might not be easy, but the view and satisfaction of being up there, 4000 metres above sea level is just fantastic.
Suspended in the middle of the jungle, with only a plank to walk on and supported by a few ropes....
A pleasant promenade with an open air food court, facing South China Sea and Pulau Gaya, nice place for walking and enjoy the beautiful sunsets of Kota.
This is a swordfish trapped in the middle of a roundabout. Don't know if it is the symbol of KK, but I have seen a few pictures of it.
Want a panoramic view of the city, you have to go up to the observation deck. I heard the sunset is superb!
Local dance performance can be seen in some seafood place. Try to get a taste of sabah's many tribal culture.
