Trips and Tours to Kota Kinabalu

Capital of the state of Sabah in Borneo, Kota Kinabalu is an interesting mix of utilitarian concrete sprawl and vibrant urban culture. Commonly referred to as simply KK, Kota Kinabalu is often the first stop on any Sabah itinerary, serving as the state's transport and commercial hub. Beyond the city travellers can get their culture fix at the Mari Mari Village or don their snorkel and mask to explore the underwater world of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. Kota Kinabalu is also the perfect base from which to hop on a short flight to Sandakan to meet Borneo’s favourite primates, the orangutan and proboscis monkey. Choose from these experiences and more with our range of day tours and activities from Kota Kinabalu, all available to book online today with live availability and instant confirmation.
