Visit kota kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu - Sabah’s capital is something of a gateway for many who travel to untamed Borneo, but it does make an excellent base, with good incentives to linger. Bordered by a patchwork sea of turquoise and azure on one side and ringed by rainforest and the majestic Mount Kinabalu on the other, dynamic Kota Kinabalu, is the perfect gateway. The culinary scene is great, museums here detail the island’s heritage, and there’s even a steam railway; just not much historic architecture, thanks to Allied bombing runs during World War II.
