Getting ready to take off on your Kota Kinabalu holiday? Haven't got a clue what things to add to your travel programme? Don't worry — we'll give you some hints.

The Sabah State Mosque and 1 Borneo Hypermall are some of the most popular attractions in this city. Organise a day trip around them and see for yourself what all the talk is about!

Shopaholics rejoice — you'll be able to treat yourself to some retail therapy at Centre Point. Ready to exercise that credit card and buy up a storm? There's a fabulous range of things to keep you busy in this destination. Body wash, shampoo and a toothbrush are a few of the supplies you need while on holiday. But — if you happen to forget your toiletry bag, you'll probably find what you need at City Mall. Still got some time on your hands? Used for public worship and private times of prayer, All Saint's Cathedral is a significant holy structure. That being said, you don't need to be a regular church-goer to explore this soothing space.
