Kota Kinabalu is known as the capital city in Sabah. It is rich in entertainment, natural food and festivals. The city itself is vast and offers a lot of opportunities such as jobs, businesses and even potential dates. While the city is also a hotspot for foreign tourists to visit and rest, as evident that locals will often see mostly Chinese and Korean tourists taking a detour here and there for their own enjoyment, it can be overbearing at times.
Kota Kinabalu is also known as a city of entertainment where numerous shopping malls are and built. Locals and people from afar would travel to these places, such as Suria Sabah, Center Point and the newly established mall named Imago. Out of the three, Suria Sabah and Imago are the popular ones, as multiple activities and events are held there in conjunction with many holidays and festivals as people from all over came to celebrate. Center Point became a, well, center for most sneaky and suspicious activities, so tourists were advised to stay away from that mall.
Along with all the entertainments, Kota Kinabalu too is a place for foodies. There are numerous hawker stalls and food marts available for snacking during the day and night, or even midnight. Most of them are affordable and comes in large portions that it’s enough for a hearty meal. I would personally recommend heading over to the food stalls at Gaya Street for grand meals for a cheap price.
All and all, Kota Kinabalu is a wonderful place full of excitement and life as everyone from afar would visit here from to try and settle down. Although the city is already great, it faces more improvements which will surely come one day.
