Best of Kota Kinabalu Tour

The Best of Kota Kinabalu Tour is a fun and exciting day trip going in and around the beautiful city of Kota Kinabalu from morning until night time. Previously named Jesselton, the city was razed to the ground in WWII by the Allied Forces abandoning it during the invasion of the Japanese. In 1963, the city was rebuilt and named Kota Kinabalu. Kota Kinabalu is a busy city with a small town atmosphere. Affectionately known as simply KK, the longer you spend here the more the place grows on you. Overlooking the South China Sea and the beautiful tropical islands and virgin rainforest of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, the Crocker Range and Mount Kinabalu as its backdrop, one could not wish for more superior visual variety. The main landmarks here include a bird’s eye view of the city at Signal Hill, Pu Tou Tze Buddhist Temple, Handicraft Market, Sabah Foundation Building with only three of its kind in the world with such design concept and a picturesque City Mosque built on a manmade lake!

Mari Mari Cultural Village

Located in the countryside about 25 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu city centre, the village aims to share the knowledge, history, culture, and tradition of 5 different main ethnic tribes in one village namely the Kadazan-Dusun, Rungus, Lundayeh, Bajau and Murut.
