  • Recommended place to go if you want to get peace of mind from the hectic city.. here is the place to go and enjoy the beautiful view and sunset from the top of the hill..  more »
  • 我想看到京那巴魯最佳景色,所以我決定乘坐一小時的車程。這個地方是高825米(高於香港的維多利亞峰頂),西部可看到城市的全景,東部可看到京那巴魯山的部分景。要上山,必須經過一條長長的上坡路。一路上,你可以看到城市和大海。山上有一個咖啡館,可以喝下午茶,或簡單的午餐。一些遊客可能喜歡住在山上的酒店。但我認為這裡離開其它景點太遠了。  more »
