About Kota Kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu continues to find new ways to lure you with its friendly locals, fiery sunsets and natural wonders. Rugged mountain terrain interspersed with secluded beaches meets a charming old-world vibe and thriving music scene.

Things to do

Most travellers visit Kota Kinabalu for Shangri-La’s Orangutan Care Project, where you can meet orangutans up close. The nature care project raises awareness for endangered species, taking visitors on an excursion through 25 hectares of wild terrain. For an exciting wildlife experience, walk along the hanging canopy bridge and watch as orangutans eat fruit and move from one tree to another.

Spend your evenings sampling delicious Malay fare in the Night Market, dining on fresh seafood at Sedco Square and indulging in local delicacies in Chinatown. Climb Signal Hill Observatory Platform, the highest point in the city, where you can relax on an airy deck with coastal vistas.

Go island hopping in the unspoilt Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park to see beautiful coastal landscapes only 30 minutes away via speedboat. Hike the scenic trails of Gaya, snorkel the clear waters of Sapi and escape the tourist crowds on Mamutik Island.

Adventurous travellers can test their endurance with an excursion to the top of Mount Kinabalu, where they’ll be rewarded with mountain and valley vistas. There are also smaller trails around Kinabalu National Park that reveal scenic viewpoints and exotic wildlife. You can also take a river cruise in the Klias Wetlands reserve to see lush mangrove areas and possibly spot an elusive Proboscis monkey.

Getting Around

Most of Kota Kinabalu’s major attractions are near the city centre, so it’s easily navigated on foot. Minivans and buses are ideal for getting to the airport, while hired drivers are recommended for farther destinations. You can also catch a ferry or cruise to visit islands and nature reserves.
