Sabah is a part of Borneo island, which is the third biggest island in the world. Kota Kinabalu, formerly known as Jesselton, is the capital city of Sabah. Kota Kinabalu is a fast-growing tourism destination and getaway for travelers to explore within Sabah Borneo.
Forget Bar Hopping, go Island Hopping instead at Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park (TARP) islands for exciting water activities such as snorkeling, banana boat riding, parasailing, jet skiing, and many other activities or just hang out by the beach and get a tan.
Feeling historical for a day? You can take a walk around Gaya Street to see the three buildings that survived the 1945 Allied bombings; – Atkinson Clock Tower, Sabah Tourism building, and a welfare office. Thirsty for more knowledge on the histories and cultures of Sabah? Drop by the Sabah State Museum, Monsopiad Cultural Village, and/or Mari-Mari Cultural Village for a day and soak up all the information and exciting views it has to offer.
Witness the jaw-dropping sunsets in Sabah while having a cold pint of beer at Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort Sunset Bar or Waterfront, or maybe you can go up to Signal Hill Observatory Tower to watch the sunset and get a whole panoramic view of the bustling city of Kota Kinabalu city and the islands surrounding its water.
Get the full insight of aquatic and wildlife ecosystem in Kota Kinabalu city by visiting the UMS Aquarium, Marine Museum, Kota Kinabalu Wetland Park, and Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. Are you an adrenaline junkie? Raft the rough waters (we kid you) in the Kiulu river or jungle trek at the Kawang Jungle for a day or two (maybe four nights if you love it so much!).
If you are a foodie (like the rest of us), Sabah is definitely a great place to get your mouth ready for fresh-off-the-sea seafood, scrumptious local delicacies, or you can learn to prepare Borneo’s traditional food to share with everyone back home!
