Best things to do in Kota Kinabalu

“Imago The Mall at KK Times Square is one of Kota Kinabalu's largest shopping centres. It opened on 28 March 2015.Interesting about Imago shopping mall is the non-strata title of the shop lots, which I understands to mean that the mall owns all the shops. This is good news for shoppers for 2 reasons. 1st, because the mall management owns everything, there's a high incentive to maintain the mall and not neglect the property like is the case with older malls in KK. 2nd, In theory this means the management can make sure there's variety and quality, and get rid of shops that sell junk that doesn't attract any shoppers”

“Besides Imago, Suria is the next best shopping mall in town. There's a Sephora there as well if Imago is too crowded for you. Besides the regular eateries, there's a little bakery on the 3rd floor by City Grocer that has delicious baked goods. I never miss the chance to grab some whenever I'm there. There's a cinema as well on the 8th floor - GSC Cinemas. It is different from the cinema in Imago and sometimes offers different movies from different countries during their special celebrations.”

“This is also one of the nightlife "go to" places in KK. In the strip alone there are more than 15 bars of different styles and each one of them are unique. Some are open air while some are air-conditioned. Some have bands singing and playing so it's up to you which one you prefer. You can also sit out by the boardwalk with the view of the sea just right beside you. This is right in the heart of the city so it would be best if you take a taxi or grab over because parking is very limited.”
