Flights to Kota Kinabalu bring you to one of Malaysia's busiest airports but you can easily escape the crowds. Mount Kinabalu is a 2-hour drive from the modern city of Kota Kinabalu and is known for its beauty and biodiversity. The inaptly-named Low's Summit is reachable without mountain climbing gear and affords a wonderful view from its 4000-metre plus peak.
Water babies also love this relatively isloated part of Malaysia – there are plentiful wrecks to dive due to the area's involvement in World War II, beaches to snorkel and fish to be caught. The 5 islands just offshore that comprise Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park – Manukan, Sapi, Gaya, Sulug and Mamutik – are all accessible by speedboat link from Jesselton Point Jetty.
