Hi Myra,

Within Kota Kinabalu city, you can visit the Filipino market and KK Waterfront. If your family likes seafood, you can have a sumptuous meal at Ocean Seafood Village or Welcome Seafood Restaurant.

However, most of the nice things to see are outside of the city, as Kota Kinabalu is a small town. You can book day trips to different parts around Kota Kinabalu region with the local operators here. I would recommend the following tours:

- Visit to Kinabalu National Park & Poring Hot Springs (Malaysia's first UNESCO heritage site)

- Twin Island hopping at Tunku Abdul Rahman Park (20 minutes boat ride from KK city)

- Sunset wildlife river cruise along "The Little Kinabatagan" of KK (can see Proboscis Monkeys & Fireflies)

Hope this helps!
