Some of Kota Kinabalu best views can be seen from the Observatory Tower.
One of the best place to have an over all view of Kota Kinabalu City is the Observatory Tower on Signal Hill. From the old sea port area (Jesselton Point) all the way to the Airport (Terminal 2) that is how far one gets to see up here. One can also have good view at Gaya Island from the Observatory Tower. The entrance fee is free.
One can reach the Observatory Tower by foot, start from the City Padang, walk up to Signal Hill , and turn right. This might take about 15 to 20 minutes walk, all up hill and the road is mostly cover by trees. Another way is hired a taxi or rent a car or motor bike at Go Go Sabah.
Evening is a good time to come up here, as the temperature is not as warm as the mid-day. And the Observatory Tower is open at night too with good lighting and below the deck there are two small washrooms, one for the lady and the other one for man.
