We have a trip to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia in January of next year. It's embarrassing to admit that we have no idea of what to see in Kota Kinabalu. We had been to Kuala Lumpur last year and we liked the place for the cheap food and friendly people. But Kuala Lumpur is a city while my impression of Kota Kinabalu is a rural place. Maybe there are beach resorts there or forest resorts, I really do not know. What is there to see in Kota Kinabalu, anyone? What kind of food do we expect they have and are the hotels there okay like in Kuala Lumpur?
