As the main reason why we went to Kota Kinabalu was for Mount Kinabalu Climb, we never really had enough time to see much the city as all of us in the group just had four days and in that four days includes the return flight and mountain climbing.
In our first day in the city, we arrived in Kota Kinabalu airport in the evening of that day. As far as I remember, we look for a place to sleep for the night and we found one in the city center. We slept in a dorm type accommodation. The whole group woke-up early for the climb. On our way to Mount Kinabalu, we spotted Masjid Bandar Kota Kinabalu (Kota Kinabalu City Mosque).

And when we were on our way back to the airport after the climb, we passed Jalan Pantai and had a quick peek of the Malaysian Monument (Tugu Peringatan Malaysia) which seems a historical monument. Then we saw Kota Kinabalu City Hall (Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu) and we sighted another mosque in the city named Masjid Negeri Sabah.

That’s how we briefly traveled the city. I knew there are other places to see but we’re running out of time. Next thing we knew we were waiting at the airport for our flight back to Manila.
