What to do in Kota Kinabalu when it’s Raining
It will almost certainly rain at some point during your trip to Kota Kinabalu, so check out our list of what to do in Kota Kinabalu when it’s raining. The good news is that the tropical rain here doesn’t usually last for a long time.
1) Spend your day catching up on reading and writing
When you catch yourself not able to visit Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, or trekking up Mount Trusmadi, just relax and catch up with current affairs of the world and local news as well. It helps to know what is happening in your surrounding especially if it’s a long travel. You can also enjoy your time catching up on your travel journal. What better way than sitting on your bed by the window, sipping on hot coffee while reminiscing about your fruitful experience having to meet an Orangutan while riding a 4X4 vehicle out from the forest terrain.
2) Hang out with other travelers
3) Watching Movies
4) Visit Sabah Museum
5) Visit Shopping Malls
Taking pictures outdoors during a rainy day is probably the last thing that anyone would want to do. However, taking pictures during rainy days is actually a totally different experience; different perspective. With the gloomy weather, you can easily capture some good shot of street photography that provides a different perspective without using any filter.

7) Visit the local Bars
8) Dinner in D’Place Kinabalu
Another activity for travelers to do if it is raining in Sabah Borneo will be to have dinner at D’ Place Kinabalu, Plaza Shell. Travelers will get the chance to taste some of the traditional and exotic dishes of Kadazandusun (one of the major tribes in Sabah Borneo). Apart from that, travelers could also witness the cultural dance performances while enjoying their dinner, as well as participate in doing some traditional activities. Not only that, the main highlight at the D’Place Kinabalu would be eating a live sago worm or butod and it is recommended for travelers to try it at least once in their lifetime.
