Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah known fondly by the locals as KK, is commonly described by Sabah Tourism as Malaysia's Borneo. To many, the very mention of Borneo still conjures up images of unexplored jungles and wildlife roaming free. If this is what you came for, you won't be disappointed. But anticipate extra surprises, as KK, with its expanding cityscape and growing population, is also strikingly modern, bustling and quite happening!

Situated by the sea, against the backdrop of the majestic Mount Kinabalu and within easy reach of the mountainous inlands, present-day KK has a population of more than 200,000 made up of Malays, Chinese and some 32 local ethnic groups. The city is also a magnet for immigrants from the neighbouring countries, who flock the land in search of greener pastures. This amazing mix of cultures, reflected in the daily frenetic atmosphere in the city, will either stun or shock you, but this perhaps is where the real charm of KK lies.
