Things To Do In Kota Kinabalu With Kids
1. Go Snorkeling
A particularly excellent option is Mamutik Island which we had direct access to it via Shangri-la’s Tangjung Aru Resort and Spa’s STAR Marina private boats(if you prefer to stay here). But the park has five islands in total: Gaya, Mamutik, Manukan, Sapi and Sulug. Snorkeling and diving can be done around most of them.
You’ll see a variety of tropical fish, eels, rays, black-nosed sharks, jellyfish (the harmless kind), stunning coral and so much more in often clear waters. A number of tours run from Kota Kinabalu and it only takes a few minutes to reach the islands by boat.
2. Visit An Orangutan Sanctuary
3. Watch A Sunset
4. Zip Line Between Islands
5. Eat Malaysian Food

The park is a major area of biodiversity sporting over 1000 species of orchids, 850 butterfly species, 62 frog and toad species, the world’s biggest flower (the rafflesia) and much more.
