Itinerary

When does my tour start?

This tour time will be set to fit in with your arrival time.

When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?

The tour is 4 hours in length so you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure. All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time)

Kota Kinabalu is the capital of the state of Sabah in Easy Malaysia. The modern town provides everything the visitor could possible need – from ancient buildings, religious sites, museums, shops and cafes to the beautiful Tunku Abdul Rahmen National Park and magnificent Mount Kinabalu. The architecture is a wonderful mix of ancient, traditional Malaysian and English Colonial.

Your experienced guide will meet you at the port and take you on a wonderful journey through the ages on your tour. Your first stop is the unique 30-storey high circular Sabah Foundation Building. Built in 1977, this unique cylindrical tower was designed with a central core supported by high-tensile steel rods and brackets to hold each floor, making each floor column-free.

On your way to your next stop you will pass by the beautiful Blue City Mosque before stopping at the famous Buddhist Puh Toh Tze Temple. The temple is a typical example of the Chinese architecture the area is known for with its traditional roof and structure. The huge reclining Buddha outside the building is a must see.

Next stop is the Sabah State Museum where you will take a look at the rich history, culture and heritage of the people of Sabah. The area surrounding the museum also contains a beautiful garden, a zoo and a heritage village. Your last stop on this wonderful tour is the buzzing and colourful Sabah Handicraft Market where you will be mesmerised by the local culture as you check out the bustling collection of colourful stalls selling local souvenirs and handicrafts, decorative items, clothing of all types, beautiful accessories from the prized pearl necklace, tailor made crystal bracelets to dainty beadwork necklaces and modern jewellery with an ethnic flavour. The market provides the perfect place to pick up a souvenir or two to remind you of your time in Kota Kinabalu.

This amazing tour will give you a real insight into the wonderful culture and history of this beautiful city and is a must whilst you are in Malaysia.
