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

A strenuous climb up to the platform. The view of the harbour is largely blocked by building along the waterfront and nearby streets. This should be a great view, but you can see little of the harbour and the islands in the distance.

This place gives you a panoramic view of the city. There's not much to do here than enjoy the view of the city below.

A perfect place to view KK, the place is quite windy that gives a refreshing feeling especially if it’s quite hot. It would be nice to jog along that place.

Great short hike, they should maintain the trail better to attract more people to hike the trail. There's a convenience shop that sells tidbits, snacks and popsicles. They'll also serve drinks and finger foods, hotdogs, etc.

Hello. There is no fee to pay. You cannot see the sunrise as Signal Hill blocks the sunrise. You can see the sunset but there are better places besides the sea to view the sunset
