While Sabah isn’t exactly known for nightlife, the scene in Kota Kinabalu keeps getting better, with plenty of things to do after dark. Whether you prefer your nightlife activities to be structured or more sedate, you can find it in Sabah’s capital city. These are some of the best nightlife experiences.

Night Shows
Traditional dance offers a window into a local culture, and the Sabah district of North Borneo is no exception. For a cultural experience after sundown, head to a Sabah dinner and dance show. Make an evening out of it by kicking things off with a tour of Kota Kinabalu’s busy night market and a trip to Signal Hill to take in the views of the city as it lights up for the night.

Dinner Experiences
If you’re idea of nightlife involves a dose of romance, don’t miss the opportunity to head into the countryside outside Kota Kinabalu City for a Malaysian hot pot hilltop dinner with sweeping views of Mount Kinabalu and the Crocker Range at sunset.
