The Waterfront is a mixed bag of markets, boats, rundown buildings and new areas like it in the photo. There is also lots of smells in the area, most not pleasant! The markets sold an interesting array of products but we decided not to try...More

The "I Love KK" statue makes a useful, central meeting point on the waterfront when exploring Kota Kinabalu. Interesting scenery and a good place to stop for a drink.
