D24***39Kota Kinabalu is a small town, not a lot of life, but it has everything you need. The malls are nice, movies are cheap, there's a nice fruit market. Also, it's a great point to go other places in Sabah.

Kota Kinabalu
Kota Kinabalu is the capital of Sabah, which is a Malaysian state in northern Borneo. The city, also known as KK, is located by the seaside and is known for its bustling markets, beautiful beaches, seaside mosque and more. Kota Kinabalu is surrounded by the beautiful rainforests of Borneo and is the gateway to the Kinabalu National Park which is also home to Mount Kinabalu. The city has a very different flavour compared to West Malaysia, and you will be pleasantly surprised by the rustic atmosphere of this seaside city. While most tourists use the city as a base to explore the beautiful countryside, you must also set aside a couple of days to explore the city. It has a lot to offer that is beyond the usual tourist trappings. Kota Kinabalu is a charming city that is worth exploring for an unfiltered view of eastern Malay culture. Here is a list of things you must see while in Kota Kinabalu.

Labuk Bay: Proboscis monkeys and firefly watching The Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary is the best place to watch proboscis monkeys in the world. Visitors get to take photos of the monkeys close up at their mealtime. The proboscis monkeys have surprisingly large noses, and the older they are, the longer the noses. When they are excited, the big noses stand up or throb up and down, which looks very amusing.
