Over the years, I have probably “visited” Kota Kinabalu, Sabah for work probably more than a dozen times. I kept telling my wife how beautiful it is to whilst I was on my Jom Kurus tour recently, I finally decided to extend my visit and brought my family along for a quickie getaway.

Its one of those places that gives you this feeling of being in Indonesia but you are still in good old Malaysia. People are amazingly friendly, pace of life of not too fast nor too slow, seafood is cheap (relative to KL anyhow), it has an amazing sunset and hey you can go island hoping without getting too fat off shore.
