Tanjung Aru Beach 5.0 stars
Beach - #3 of 18
I love the Tanjung Aru Beach for its quaintness. Located some 6km from the city centre, it’s virtually in the city but safe from the noises of the city. There are also F&B outlets at the Beach. If you want food, you should try the food court, ... [more ]
Water Front at Kota Kinabalu 4.0 stars
Harbour - #4 of 18
Kota Konabulu´s waterfront did not have the colonial look of other parts of this area and rather reflected a very modern look. Lively and vibrant, this magnificent waterfront was the perfect place to enjoy some nice local food. I visited the ... [more ]
Double Six Monument 5.0 stars
Sculpture, Monument, Statue, Memorial Place - #5 of 18

Kadaiku 5.0 stars
Shopping - #9 of 18
Whenever I go to KK, I’ll go to Kadaiku, a local handicraft boutique. The boutique is owned by company of the local tourism authority. “Kadaiku” means “my shop” in the Brunei dialect. I love coming here not to buy things but to look at them. ... [more ]
TUN MUSTAPHA TOWER 5.0 stars
Tower - #10 of 18
The Tun Mustapha Tower is a must-see attraction in Kota Kinabalu. If you have been there, then you have been to one of only four such buildings in the world! 30-storey high, the building is a glass circular structure supported by high tensile ... [more ]
ATKINSON CLOCK TOWER 5.0 stars
Tower - #11 of 18

Monsopiad Cultural Village 5.0 stars
Prehistoric, Classical Antiquity Site - #12 of 18
This is a must-see, because here is the only place where you’ll see 42 skulls, the remnants of the long-gone head-hunting days of the Kadazandusun people. There are several sections at the Monsopiad Cultural Village, but my favourite is the House ... [more ]
Kota Kinabalu City Anniversary Celebration 5.0 stars
Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #13 of 18
I missed the 8th Kota Kinabalu City Anniversary on Feb 8, 2008. How sad. This is because the anniversary celebration would be an extravaganza of shows for one whole week. And the best show would be the international dance show. I was there ... [more ]
Filipino Market 5.0 stars
Market Place - #14 of 18
If you want local handicraft stuffs and souvenirs, better head to the Filipino Market. Located just behind the Kadaiku, a boutique selling the same stuffs, the Filipino Market sells them at a much lower price and it’s negotiable. The bamboo or ... [more ]
Sabah Tourism Building 5.0 stars
Building - #15 of 18
It’s really nice to have the local tourism authority located in a touristy place itself. The Sabah Tourism Board’s building is located along the part of Gaya Street that dates back to 1916. It was only one of three buildings that survived Allied ... [more ]

Shopping - #17 of 18
