Traffic Information

Kota Kinabalu is a modern city that is relatively smaller compared to other urba Malaysian areas, so driving around to get to its many tourist destinations isn’t difficult. However, if you want to reach areas like Kuala Pengu or Menombok, the trips are a little longer because these places are at the borders of KK. You should know that all main roads in Sabah all branch out from Kota Kinabalu, and given its small size and big population composed of both locals and tourists, heavy traffic sometimes becomes a problem. As a result, rental car services and private vehicles are the best option, as the population of the city makes public transportation difficult both due to heavy traffic conditions and the volume of passengers.

Of course we’d be doing the park a disservice if we didn’t mention the beautiful ambiance given by its landscape formed by trees, flowers, and shrubberies.
