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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Chanteek Borneo Gallery and Monsopiad Cultural Village. Get in touch with nature at Shangri-la Rasa Ria Nature Reserve and Kinabalu Park. Change things up with a short trip to Dalit Bay Golf & Country Club - Kota Kinabalu in Tuaran (about 44 minutes away). Spend the 9th (Sat) exploring nature at Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. There's much more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, step off the mainland to explore Manukan Island, tee off at Sutera Harbour Golf & Country Club, and experience rural life at Desa Dairy Farm.

Expect a daytime high around 38°C in September, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
