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.
Get outdoors at Dalit Bay Golf & Country Club and Tanjung Aru Beach. Shop till you drop at Imago Shopping Mall and Kadaiku. Spend the 28th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Make the 29th (Fri) a memorable day with a climbing tour. There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Kinabalu, make a trip to Sabah State Mosque (Masjid Negeri Sabah), pause for some photo ops at Kundasang War Memorial, and play a few rounds at Sutera Harbour Golf & Country Club.
