Pricey industrial snacks and food only. Staff unpleasant. Dirty place. Nothing to do and nothing to see. Time wasted.

We called with our guide on a city tour, so he was able to point out the intersting places, and about the expansion of the city over the years. Small basic cafe here, we did not use. Only spent 10 mins here

The Signal Hill offers a fantastic view over Kota Kinabalu and for sure many great pictures. The walk up is just 200 meter and very easy.

Nice view of KK and the TARP islands. Has a cafe; we didn't try it so can't speak for it. Best to go at sunset. Only accessible by car/bus - not a close walk to anywhere. Minimal parking.

A morning walk up there would be great with a view of Kota Kinabalu. It's relaxing with the fresh air.

We took a taxi up to the viewing platform and what s disappointment it was. View is spoilt by dirty, run down buildings. There is a small , rather basic cafe at the viewing platform. The walk down via the staircase is easy.

Signal Hill provides a view of the whole Kota Kinabalu area. We took our pictures with the panoramic view. We were told only two structures were left after the world war like the century old Atkinson Clock and Post Office
