Kota Kinabalu tour packages & holidays

Flying into Kota Kinabalu International Airport is your first of many attractions while touring Malaysia. You begin with the Malaysian vision of an airport terminal.  The airport design is inspired by the construction of the Wakid basket, a traditional art object of the capital state of Sabah, Malaysia on the island of Borneo, the location of the airport.

Begin your holiday in Sabah and venture into the surrounding states of Malaysia.  Tours of the remainder of the Island of Borneo start with Pulau Gaya Island, part of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park.  Only 10 minutes from Kota Kinabalu by speedboat. The waters, coral gardens and beaches surrounding the island offer a peaceful learning environment for new divers and hours of enjoyment for snorkeler and sea walkers.

Mount Kinabalu, Mari Mari Cultural Village, North Borneo Steam Railway and the South Sea Sanctuary are all exciting attractions.  Mount Kinabalu is a 13,400 foot peak that beckons climbers to venture up its rocky terrain crowned with a granite dome.  Trekkers can follow one of two trails to its summit.  Timpohon Trail is less challenging and suited for beginners, while Mesilau Trail is more scenic and great for the more accomplish climber.  Mari Mari Cultural Village is an outdoor historical view of old Malaysia.  Experience the traditions of early Malaysia, their daily life, dress and housing, their foods, hunting and their native crafts.  North Borneo Steam Railway takes travelers back in time to a nostalgic era when steam trains were common.  Railway riders hear 1950's music while being served by railway employees dressed in era specific uniforms with pith helmets.  The journey takes them through villages, rainforest and coffee and rubber plantations in North Borneo.  Those seeking pampering can check in at the celebrated South Sea Sanctuary.  Relax and receive beauty (ie. the Harmony Body Scrub), holistic (ie. Chinese Tui Na, Podo-Mobilisation) and wellness treatments at this renowned spa.

Tours of Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia should include these major attractions to guarantee visitors the full experience of Northwest Borneo.  Tourists see firsthand the melding of ethnic groups from every corner of the world. Plus, visitors get a glimpse of old Malaysia, get immersed in natural Malaysia and enjoy the new Malaysia.
