Half-Day, Small-Group Kota Kinabalu City Tour
Reviewed 8 March 2018

We visited Signal Hill especially to view the sunset, as we were told this was the place to go. Very crowded, and you can't see the horizon because the city has grown so high that the sea view is virtually non-existant, so you get the sky colour at sunset, but can't see the sun sink into the ocean. We had a better view from our hotel.

Hello, this is the highest building around the city centre, You can enjoy your sunset if you stay until 7.00pm, Easy to go here. You can choose by walk or get a public cab

Lovely views of the islands and KK town. There is a cafe where you can buy refreshments. There is also a convenient shop. Recommended.

At the time of visiting trees blocked some of the view. Nice views of the islands and waterfront. I think the viewing platform would have been better served if it was set higher from its current location

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.
