Kota Kinabalu

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Boat Tours & Water Sports and Mount Kinabalu National Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kota Kinabalu: Tuaran (Rasa Ria Reserve by Shangri-La & Dalit Bay Golf & Country Club) and Kundasang War Memorial (in Kundasang). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Tanjung Aru Beach, get curious at Marine Aquarium and Museum, step off the mainland to explore Manukan Island, and stroll around City Park.

To find ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Kota Kinabalu trip itinerary website.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
