Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia

Kota Kinabalu formerly Jesselton, is the capital of Sabah state in Malaysia. It is also the capital of the West Coast Division of Sabah. The city is located on the northwest coast of Borneo facing the South China Sea. The Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park lies on one side and Mount Kinabalu, which gave the city its name, is nearby. Kota Kinabalu proper has a population of 579,304, while the larger urban area has an estimated population of 700,000. It is the largest urban centre in Sabah and the sixth largest in Malaysia

Sited just off the coast of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park which comprises 5 islands; Pulau Gayana, Pulau Manukan, Pulau Sapi, Pulau Sulug and Pulau Mamutik, was gazetted in 1974 as Sabah's second national park under the guardianship of Sabah Park. Though diving at the marine park is possible all year round, the best visibility is enjoyed between March and October before the annual plankton boom occurs. But should you find yourself visiting during the annual plankton season, you will not be disappointed, as the krill bloom attracts whale sharks, a most extraordinary sight. Besides snorkeling and diving, visitors may also try out sea walking or opt for a delightful sunset cruise. Windsurfing and para sailing are conducted just outside of the park's boundaries.
