Travelling to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
Kota Kinabalu, also known at KK, is located on the island of Borneo and is the capital of the Sabah province of Malaysia. Most travellers who come here use the capital as a base for exploring the wider province, which is known for its lush jungles and beautiful beaches. There’s also plenty to see and do in the city itself, so it’s worth spending a few days here.
Kota Kinabalu has a humid equatorial climate and is known for its spectacular sunsets. Favourite places to watch the sun set include Tanjung Aru beach, the Segama waterfront and Signal Hill Observatory tower, where you can look out over the city. One of the best views can be seen from the top of Bukit Padang, a popular hiking spot with panoramic vistas of the region.
Kota Kinabalu is renowned for its markets and also its street food thanks to the multicultural nature of the city. The Central Market sells fresh everything, from fruit and vegetables through to meat and poultry. Just a few steps away is the Handicraft Market, where you can buy sarongs and mementos.
