    It's a nice clean beach with clear water but dont expect much for the underwater. Their facilities and maintenance is quite good

    The setup and the different tenants give this mall an upmarket feel. It is a better-managed mall than others in the KK area. Also, the only mall that I know in KK does not charge visitors for using the toilet.

    Visited during Raya 2019. This was my 3rd visit after a few years. It has improved in the variety of stalls but still mostly selling the same touristy stuff. Good place for getting souvenirs as you can bargain. Tried the infamous blended watermelon juice and it was really refreshing especially in the hot weather. Great place to stroll would definitely recommend to others.

    We were so excited to visit this popular Kota Kinabalu City Mosque or also called Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu. Unfortunately when we arrived there, they showed us a big signage stating that the mosque is no longer open for tourists. We asked the locals why it was closed, and they said due to the Corona Virus. They really take good care of their people here in KKCity.
    We were only allowed to stay across the street where there's basically nothing but landscapes.
    Behold, it didn't stop us for being creative. We needed to take at least some pictures and had some fun!

    Mamutik is the smallest of the offshore islands and the quietest too. We visited it on an island hopping two island boat journey purchased from a booth at the Jesselton point ferry terminal at one end of Kota Kinabalu town. You pay 1 ringgit an hour to park the car there - so perfectly reasonable. We took a 9am boat out to Sapi island first - but Mamutik (our second island) was much better. There is plenty of shade on the beach and there is good snorkelling to the right of the small pier (as you look out to sea from the island). There are places to buy drinks and sandwiches too. We could have stayed longer - it was very relaxing and enjoyable - and beautifully clean water!

    I first went 20 years ago and whilst it’s still very pretty the predictable explosion of silly ‘tourist stuff’ has occurred since - zip line, sea walking, inflatable course etc. The major disappointment is the amount of rubbish everywhere, this is supposed to be a ‘national park’. Boats are freely available from 3 marinas and en route the plastic floating around is painfully obvious. We picked up bag after bag of trash from the beaches on Sapi, Mamutik and Manukan right under the noses of the ‘lifeguards’ who were ‘pretending not to notice’ they clearly think that doing this is below them. There’s a charge to visit this islands and it makes me think where that money is going?

    Takes about 2.5-3 hours drive from KK city depending on traffic as the road is single lane to and fro with many heavy trucks going this route and slowed the journey. Would need to spend 3-4 hours here tracking within the park and enjoy the multiple hotspring. Water is clean and not too crowded in the afternoon. It closes by about 3pm.

    Would recommend to put a night in Kundasan to fully enjoy the trip around the area. See rafflesia, Kinabalu park, dairy farm which a single day trip along the route would be too short to leisurely enjoy.

    I went there solo on March 2022, aiming for the via ferrata for the first time, and I was so thankful for my solo experience. Luckily I got the discounted price, so I wont comment much on the price. Due to the risk it takes to complete the ferrata, for me, it was worth the experience satisfaction. The walk the torq's guides/trainers were also very helpful and friendly. They even ask for permission to help me to put on the safety wear when I cant put it on me by myself. Adrian, Henry and Aiezron, all trainers did gave us clear instructions on how to operate the carabiner and lanyard throughout the trail so that we can have safe experience. This for-beginner ferrata's experience was one of my best experience and surely I will come again for the longer trail at the Low's Peak Circuit! Thank you for the very good services. Keep it up!

    I was kind of lost when I was there for the first time. This place is very big. It divided into three parts: market that sells all kind of food and fruits, food section and handicraft. Local went there to do their marketing and meals. I think is a good place to have a peek of the local life.

    Before having an island hopping, you've to drop by in Jesselton Point which is the getaway point for island hopping. You can book your ferry tickets to Manukan Island, Sapi Island, Gaya, Mamutik, and Sulug.

    Jesselton Point has a lot of souvenir shops and local restaurants to choose from. We had our lunch here before we head to Manukan Island.

    You can island hop to these islands: Manukan, Sapi, Mamutik. Gayan, Sapi and Sulug.

    The three main islands are Manukan, Mamutik, and Sapi.

    You can choose to book one, two, or three islands at a certain price. You can also add water activities like kayaking, snorkeling, sea walking, parasailing, flying fish, jetski, etc.

    In our case, we only choose one island, which is Manukan Island, as we have to compressed our itinerary.

    Saw so many different bird species in such a small area. Canopy walks were great way to get higher point of view. Almost 1000 year old tree was pretty awesome. Even saw one orangutan there while exploring the area. Nightwalk was excellent too, saw tarsier etc. Must visit for nature and wildlife lovers, 5/5.

    Went there during Raya 2019. Definitely worth the drive up there as the sunset views were AMAZING! Decided to go to the roadside burger joint as there isn't any entry fees and there were hardly anyone there. Parking can be challenging as there weren't any designated parking spots. Just roadside parking and the roads were narrow. Be careful when driving especially after dark because certain parts of the road did not have any safety railing and it was very dark.

    My wife and I were able to spot a few sun bears during our visit to the Conservation Centre. They would be very difficult to see in the wild. The bears seemed content
