Kota Kinabalu

Spent the day exploring Kota Kinabalu today. It is the capital of the state of Sabah in Malaysia, but it is actually on the island of Borneo.
It is a large modern town with loads of building work going on. I am very pleased to find that our hotel is quite traditional and actually has a door and walls to the en-suite facilities. It is also quite a nice large room with great views. The first shot is our view of the town and we also have a sea view!
There is not actually much to see in the town itself. We walked to the Atkinson Clock Tower which was one of only three buildings left standing after the Japanese occupation during the second world war.
It was very small and a bit disappointing, being surrounded by repair work.
KK is a very friendly place and has a relaxed atmosphere so we are not in a huge hurry to sort out our next move.


  1. can you check out the ferry from KK to Brunei please as that is how we intend to get there in Jan.
