Sabah ensures that you have plenty of things left to do even after having visited the major tourist attractions. Activities such as paragliding (Lohan Hill and Kokol), camping (Lohan Hill and Tunku Abdel Rahman Island Park), snorkeling (Sipadan, Layang Layang and Mabul), white-water rafting (alongside Kiulu and Padas rivers) and venturing into the jungles from camps located around the Batu Punggul area and Kinabatangan River are just some of the several things you can enjoy. North Borneo Steam Railway, which operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and the Sabah Jungle Railway, which operates daily, offer some other great things families can enjoy together.
For other non-nature related activities, head to the capital city, which will delight you with its choice of shopping malls, bars and pubs. The city is thronged with shopping malls, the most popular among which include, KK Plaza, Warisan Square, Asia City, 1Borneo, Wisma Merdeka, Suria Sabah Shopping Center and the Centrepoint. These destinations are full of great stuff at wonderful prices.
The Loft Kota Kinabalu, M-Cubed Bar, Shamrock Irish Bar, Shangri-La’s Sunset Bar and PLUtonic are the city’s most popular pubs and bars, which provide a great mix of cocktails, beer, good food, friendly company and sports on television.
