Browse Our Kota Kinabalu Tours in Sabah

Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, Borneo, is a lively modern city in a spectacular natural setting. Affectionately abbreviated as KK, Kota Kinabalu sits between the rocky green peak of Mount Kinabalu and the electric-blue waters of the South China Sea. Go diving and snorkeling in nearby Sipadan Island, take a trek up Mount Kinabalu, or venture inland to the tropical rainforests of Sabah and learn about the indigenous cultures that flourish there. For some rest and pampering in the sun, the luxury resorts of KK are incomparable. Whatever your pleasure in Borneo, Backyard Travel’s tailormade Kota Kinabalu tours delight the adventurous, curious, and indulgent souls in all of us.

This was my second time working with Backyard Travel in my vacation itinerary. The airport transfer & tours were great. I especially liked our guide Francis who took us in an amazing adventure in Mount Kinabalu Park. He was so knowledgeable & we got to see many things.
I will be using this company again & definitely recommend them to friends & family

Our experience with Backyard was not the best in Borneo. We had much better experience in Myanmar. Issues with planning. Issues with local support. Quality of service was mediocre at best. Perhaps Backyard is not quite ready for prime time in Borneo. (Again, had excellent service in planning and execution for our Myanmar trip)

What's Special About Kota Kinabalu & Sabah?

Kota Kinabalu exemplifies Borneo in its ties to culture and nature. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and wonders of this booming island city with our tailored Kota Kinabalu tours. Find out why Borneo is one of the finest destinations of Southeast Asia.



CHARACTER

Like the rest of Borneo, KK is highly mixed in its population. Malay, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, and Filipino people call the city home, along with indigenous Borneans, like Dusun, Kadazan, and Murut. Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity are all practiced.



CLIMATE

January through March, the dry season, is generally a good time to visit KK. But as a tropical destination, there’s little variation in temperature throughout the year—expect it to be hot and humid.



ENTERTAINMENT

Take a day to fish, snorkel, or scuba dive. Or hike your way through the forests of Kinabalu Park. KK has its share of shopping, restaurants, and bars, but you’ll find most of your fun in the wild.



CULTURE

Culture is best discovered through food, and KK is renowned for its seafood. Snack on grilled prawns and smoked fish at night markets. You should also visit the villages just outside KK and learn about Borneo’s indigenous communities.



LANGUAGE

You can hear Borneo’s linguistic flair on any crowded street. Malay and Chinese are widely spoken. Most locals also speak some basic English, and you’ll find it relatively easy to get by with English in KK.



HISTORY

With a history of colonization, Kota Kinabalu retains its motley culture today. To learn about the city’s past, don’t miss the Sabah State Museum. The Islamic Civilization Museum provides a glimpse into Sabah’s Muslim heritage as well.
