I don't think KK is an attractive city from the air, so I walked down the hill, tried my best to take photos of the building itself. I like the building itself very much though.

It's free to go on the platform but you can also buy food from the cafe. Lovely views of KK so highly recommended!

If you wish to walk to the Observatory, it is at least 30 minutes up hill from Tourism Centre. If you wish to drive by car, it is less than 5 minutes.

We were recommended to visit the Observatory. Don’t waste your time.

You would not be able to see anything. They have built Hugh hotels in front of the Observatory. You could hardly see anything worth noticing.

It offers a nice view of the city. Nothing spectacular. Easy hike up to the top. Some benches available as well.

Checking out the Signal Hill Observatory on our first day in Kota Kinabalu was a great way for us to get our bearings. The view isn't too bad at all, bring your camera and some water. It's probably best to do this early in the morning or later in the afternoon when it is not too hot!
