Inspirock Rating:
2.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web
From the top of Signal Hill Observatory Platform you can see Kota Kinabalu from above. Reach the summit by car or by climbing the 250 or so steps, and then see if you can make out the bay just beyond the high rises. If you choose to climb the steps, you will be thankful for the refreshments sold by the viewing platform's resident kiosk.

  • A short drive up the Signal Hill just to view the entire town and the coastal view. Nothing much to see. 
  • Signal Hill Observatory is the highest point in the city. What you can see are the buildings not afar, and the islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park. 
  • 從沙巴旅遊局後方的登山步道,往上步行約5-10分鐘即可抵達半山上,從半山上有二個觀景平台可以看到整個沙巴市區以及海景。另外,面向澳洲坊可以也可以看到艾京生鐘樓。爬上山的路上要記得小心,步道較陡下雨天會濕滑,另外要記得擦防蚊液。 
  • Provides for panoramic views over Kota Kinabalu, easily accessible from central Kota Kinabalu. The walk up to Signal Hill up the steps closest to the platform provides the feeling of almost being in the rainforest. And its free! I'd suggest anybody visiting KK with half a day free should visit the viewing platform.
  • The view is ok. But block by buildings. The restaurant is shitt. Food are not nice. We had worse pesang goring there. The restaurant owner is very rude as well. Good to go if u hv extra time, not must go place in kk.
  • Great view all over the city, harbour and the island. And its free! Be carefull when you walk there because its directly nearby a street and there is no pavement!
  • The view from Signal Hill Observatory is really cool but the facilities are very lacking with a below average cafe. Best thing is bring your own refreshments and watch the sun go down over the majestic marine park of Kota Kinabalu #sunset #image #kotakinabalu #tunkuabdulrahman
  • We stopped by this place in the middle of the day. There is a small kiosk there and toilets. The view is not that great as most of it is blocked by nearby buildings. So it is not worth going out of your way to check out this place.
