Kota Kinabalu or KK is the state capital of Sabah. The city has good transport links and a range of good city and resort hotels. Kota Kinabalu’s coastal location and mountain backdrop give it one of the most spectacular settings of any city in Malaysia. One of the great things about KK is the streetlife – the busy coffee shops, the waterfront markets and generally buzz about the place. Some of the best seafood in Malaysia can be found in KK and the beaches, reefs and islands of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park are just a 15 minute boat ride from the city centre. Kota Kinabalu serves as the jumping off point for the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine park, white water rafting at Padas and Kiulu, Rungus longhouses at Kudat, Klias wildlife cruises and the magnificent Kinabalu Park.
