A holiday in Kota Kinabalu, the state capital and main gateway town, offers access to urban areas boasting a diverse and rapidly evolving set of malls, bars, and quality restaurants serving locally caught seafood.
Family-friendly places like Spas and Kota Kinabalu City Mosque will thrill your kids. Spend the 7th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour.
