Kota Kinabalu Maps and Orientation

(Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia)

Kota Kinabalu is on the west coast of Sabah, which translates as north-west Borneo. It is a large city (for Borneo), stretching several kilometres in either direction from the shoreline. The downtown area is a busy hub and resides in a relatively compact spot near to the harbourfront.

Maps of Kota Kinabalu are best obtained even if you plan on just sticking to the city centre and main attractions. You can pick up Kota Kinabalu maps online or from the Sabah Tourism Board at 51 Gaya Street (Jalan Gaya).

Maps and Orientation of the City

It is easy enough to get around Kota Kinabalu on foot, as most of the hotels and attractions are right in the city centre, in and around the several blocks that occupy the waterfront area.

The airport is just a few kilometres to the south of the city centre, while due west is the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park and its many islands. The Sabah Fish Market, hotels, mosques and attractions are just south of the ferry terminal.
