This lookout has limited view of KK city. The tall building blocked most of the view of the waterfront, except for a small patch. There was a cafe seen here. I would imagine the nightview of KK from here would be quite nice while sipping a drink, but is not sure whether the place is opened at night.

Located near the Atkinson Clock tower (approx. 2 mins walk) and Suria Sabah.

You could either drive to the observation platform or walking up via red wooden stairs (approx. 5 mins). If you are using the stairs, WATCH YOUR STEPS, as some wooden stairs are either broken or missing.

Good city view from the platform. It is one of the best place to watch the sun goes down (another good spot is the waterfront) . There is a kiosk located at the observation platform, where beverages and snacks are sold.

Use of insect repellent is a must, that is if you are visiting that area

This is just a good look out over Kota Kinabalu town center and sea view. It has a convenient store there. Parking is very limited.
