Mosque
Capt.Dell_A380The Kota Kinabalu City Mosque (Malay: Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu) is the second main mosque in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, after State Mosque in Sembulan. The previous head imam is Ustaz Suhaidi Kuanting and currently is vacant.
Mantanani Island

Island/Peninsula
Beach
vivienvivienThe mermaid island is beautiful, if you don't have enough time with your children, it is totally worth staying on the island for one night, I heard that blue tears are basically invisible (and by chance it was huge); snorkeling can see a lot of fish, although you don't exaggerate to the fish storm, but it is already quite a lot; Because of the limited conditions on the island, dining is more general, but fullness is not a problem. The speedboat time to and from is in 30-45 minutes, mainly depending on the sea wind and waves; overall, it is a very worthwhile place to go.

Kawa Mangrove
4.6/5
397 Reviews
Forest
vivienvivienThe half-day tour of the mangrove is basically a one- or two-hour hotel pick up guests, then drive to the mangrove, after arriving for an afternoon tea (coffee tea and local malay snacks), take a boat to find the long-nosed monkey, and, with luck, you can see the sunset. After dinner (Malay Characteristic Buffet) continue to boat to find fireflies (the fireflies usually appear in the sun after a full hour or two after) return to the city about nine o'clock.

If we talk about "food paradise", Sabah certainly can't compare to Kuala Lumpur or Penang, but it also has lots of delicious food. Coming to Sabah for a holiday, of course, you hope not only to eat enough food, but also to eat well. Beautiful scenery and delicious food, this is the perfect holiday destination
