Getting around Kota Kinabalu is easy, thanks to the bus system, and that it is also easy to get a taxi. Another fact is the city centre which is mostly a south-north and west-east system with crosstown streets. There are also ferries to the islands and will you visit the boroughs, the buses will take you there.
Central Kota Kinabalu has many great assets, one is its walkability. To walk is in many ways the best way to see and feel a city. Most of the city centre is flat, it is only Signal Hill that is a little higher up. It is only a 15 minutes walk to Signal Hill from the old quarters of Kota Kinabalu and we can guarantee you a breathtaking view not only over the whole city but also some ovet of the islands.
Or why not take a walk along the harbour, there is the fish market there, and the ferries to the islands leave from here. You can also take a little longer walk south to the Mengkabong Water Village.
There is also bicycle rentals in hotels and in the city. If you are planning to travel outside Kota Kinabalu by car it is easy to find the right direction as the three main roads are going north, north east and south.
