First night in KK decided to have food and a drink at the waterfront. Had a walk around to get a feel and was pestered at every establishment to come in. At the northern end, the smell of raw sewage was overpowering and we had to make a quick exit (market end). Sat at the waters edge which sounds good but wasn't. The sea is full of trash, mainly plastic and this is testament to how Borneo deals with rubbish, they throw it either in the sea or on the floor. Dirtiest city I have ever been to

This seemed to be a very busy area when we were there going past in our tour taxi with the locals celebrating the lunar new year.

Stayed in kota Kinabalu (KK) in Saba. And drove to the tip of Borneo. Saba, and KK, has mostly communities of Chinese and Malay. If you drive out, towards tip of Borneo, you will see a lot of rural villages through out Borneo. Some are rural and really poor. There are communities of Muslim, and Catholics in rural parts living side by side. KK has mostly Chinese and Korean tourists. The largest mall was average, doesn’t have the huge brands that KL has. It’s not like Kuala Lumpar. Two days was enough here.

A must visit place in Kota Kinabalu. For tourists staying near central point K.K. it’s walking distance. Nearby got Filipino market, lot of famous seafood restaurants, Shopping Malls like Suria Sabah..... Have a visit and enjoy your dinner time. Most of the places here need to pay by cash.
