Kota Kinabalu: What to see and do
One of the cities in the world to be discovered after an arson incident, Kota Kinabalu received her first official moniker after the local word for fire (Api-Api). Privately-owned by the British North Borneo Chartered Company, the small fishing village was an unexpected bleep in the Company’s radar after their administrative office burned down in 1897.
Expanded into a colonial trading hub soon after, the Northern strip then switched hands from Sir Charles Jessel’s Chartered Company, to the Japanese during the Occupation, and finally to the British Crown when World War II ended. On the way, the small strip of land, which snuggles between the South China Sea and the mountainous terrain of Mount Kinabalu, has survived piracy as a growing port, the introduction of the Commonwealth estates, and the odd tribal upheaval or two, before arriving as Borneo’s second largest city only after Sarawak’s Kuching.
Discover the local UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Kinabalu National Park, the dense forest park that covers an area of up to 754 square kilometres and hosts a myriad of flourishing flora and exotic wildlife. A cooling highland destination for the locals, and a must-see destination for the throngs of tourists who laboriously scale the summit of Mount Kinabalu, the centrepiece of the park stands unperturbed and awaits for the usual fare of on-lookers who arrive for a rewarding glimpse of dawn, a peek at the oak-chestnut forests, or a sighting of the Nepenthes Rajah, the world’s largest pitcher plant.
Then, move out further to shore and find your spot amongst the sandy stretches of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, resort-gazetted zones, or hidden gems of a Sabahan beach. Consider a snorkelling trip via a private charter to the five-island group of Gaya, Sapi, Manukan, Mamutik, and Sulug, as you traverse the western portion of the world’s Coral Triangle and past her collection of vivid reefs and sea fauna. Alternatively, spread a blanket over the sands of Rasa Ria’s Dalit beach, where on-site Orangutan Education Centre calls home, or the hour-long drive destination of Mantanani beach, where sighting of dugongs and dolphins are whispered amongst locals.
