Kota Kinabalu overview

Kota Kinabalu Travel Guide
Sister city of Rockingham in Australia, Kota Kinabalu is situated on the west coast of Borneo, a stones throw from Mount Kinabalu from which it gets its name. Just minutes away from the city is the Tunka Abdul Ramen marine park consisting of five relatively unspoiled islands all offering beaches sandy enough to walk on and water clear enough to swim in. many say that any visit to Kota Kinabula can never really be called complete without a trip to the Tun Datu Haji Mustapha Bin Datu Harun. This is a very large 72-sided polygonal tower with not a supporting-column in sight. A short car journey will find visitors at the foot of Malaysia’s highest peak, Mount Kinabalu. Those who decide to conquer its slopes might want to watch stepping on the orchids that grow here as some are endemic.
