The city tour was OK but the real charm of KK lies in how the city was built (or rebuilt after WWII), while preserving and maintaining nature, enhancing and sustaining the environment. One of our most memorable experiences was doing our morning jog along the boardwalk. KK is Clean and Green, Blue Skies and Green Seas, Cool Breeze and Calm Locals, Great Food (Laksa and Bak Ku Teh) at Great Prices. Just before enplaning for Singapore we were able to take a quick trip to the zoo and see the famous Proboscis Monkey, another wonder of God's creation. When I asked the local guide why does the monkey have a long portrusion for a nose, he rightfully replied "Berkat Tuhan!" -- "Because of God!"
"KEEP KALM and KOME TO KOTA KINABALU".
This tour was OK as an orientation to Kota Kinabalu. However I was disappointed that we did not go inside the mosque, we simply pulled over in the van to look at it from the roadside. I think the description of the tour should state that this is the case with the mosque and the state admin building.
