It was a good night, and being picked up in a small van and given the guided tour of Kota Kinabalu first was a plus.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2014

I thought the golden sunset in Manila Bay (where we come from) was the best in the world until we watched the sun set in KK. It must be because the skies are clearer and the seas are cleaner. It was magical. Although the seafood dinner was sumptuous and filling, and the night market was bustling, we were shocked (and horrified) by the abundance of huge rats all over the place. The city government must launch a campaign on sanitation and hygiene and aggressive rodent control to protect locals and tourists.
