Kota Kinabalu

A holiday in Kota Kinabalu, the state capital and main gateway town, offers access to urban areas boasting a diverse and rapidly evolving set of malls, bars, and quality restaurants serving locally caught seafood.
Make the 14th (Wed) a memorable day with a climbing tour. Spend the 15th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. It doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Kinabalu and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kota Kinabalu City Mosque.

To see ratings, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, read our Kota Kinabalu day trip planning website .

In March, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
