Is Kota Kinabalu Worth Visiting?

Kota Kinabalu, often known as KK, is a fascinating coastal city located in the East Malaysian state of Sabah, on the island of Borneo. With the crystal clear waters of the South China Sea on one side and the majestic Mount Kinabalu, one of Southeast Asia's highest peaks, on the other, the city is a place where striking natural beauty meets modern urban charm.

About Me

Hi, I'm a dentist working in Kota Kinabalu. I work almost every day so it will be quite hard to host. But I'm open to meeting up for dinner or something, I love learning about cultures so It would be wonderful to meet up and make new friends 😊 I love traveling but never really done solo travel before, planning to try now 😊 I'm a vegan, Hindu, if it matters .. Classical indian dancer as well, but it has been many years since I last danced 😅 I've learnt the violin but I only know how to play "twinkle twinkle little star" 😅🤣🤣
