The Basics

You can go inside the Sabah State Mosque, though a strict code of conduct is rigidly enforced; you must declare their presence and intention to enter the mosque and must do so through the front door only.

Visit the mosque as part of a Kota Kinabalu sightseeing tour, which transport you between top city sights with ease and let you skip the hassle of car hire. Tours typically tick off the Signal Hill Observatory Platform and Sabah State Museum, which offers insight into the history and culture of the region.

Unforgettable Informative Tour - Book it!
If you're looking for a better understanding of KK, book this trip. I loved that there were two people: a dedicated driver and also a tour guide who spoke excellent English and answered any questions we had. The car was air conditioned (very important for someone jet lagged from Canada), the driver was polite and a safe driver. Walter was flexible and allowed us to stay as little or as long at the museum, Buddhist temple and market. I highly recommend this tour - it’s exactly what you’re looking for to get a better understanding of KK (Malaysian) culture and history.
