If you just want to chill, relax, and enjoy the city in a different way, Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park is one place you can look into; rain forest exploration is also another relaxing option. The friendly locals are well versed in these relaxing yet exotic wildlife adventures. This city has plenty to offer and should be a serious option to island travelers beyond the shores of Kota Kinabalu. It’s the Land Beneath the Wind, they said. Be sure to make a proper stopover before you hop on to those islands out there.
