Kota Kinabalu – Bustling City with a Mixed Population

Kota Kinabalu is a vibrant city on Sabah’s west coast and the gateway to eco-adventures like mountain climbing, white-water rafting, caving, diving and river cruising.

Located in the South China Sea, it’s a bustling city with a mixed population. Once knows as Jesselton when Sabah was British North Borneo, it was mostly rebuilt after World War II.

Places of interest are the State Museum, the Sunday Gaya Street Market which offers fresh produce, handicrafts, foodstuff and jungle products in the open air. The five islands of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park in the vicinity of Kota Kinabalu offer peaceful solitude in the sun. Enjoy a stay in many superb resorts like Sutera Harbour and Shangri-La Tanjung Aru. Just out of town, the resorts of Nexus Karambunai and Shangri-La Rasa Ria have extensive seaside facilities.
