Kota Kinabalu City Centre - Map For Travelers

I was asked by few of our fellow travelers on where to go when they arrive in Kota Kinabalu and still have plenty of time to spend before going for the climb of their life. I always advise them to get a hostel that is situated in the city centre, so that most of the important places is just a walking distance from their place.

And, if they do not know what to do, I will suggest them to go to Sabah Tourism Building, where all of the tourist spots in the state is dispalyed. You can get free brochures and pamphlets, free advice from the friendly information centre girl and maybe ease yourself after walking all day long.

So, I get a nice diagramatic, real life aerial photo of Kota Kinabalu city centre for you from Google Earth. You can get the map from my official Mount Kinabalu Borneo.com Blogsite.

Eyesore views at Mount Kinabalu

It is the first Malaysian World Heritage Site. But, after I received an email from our fellow mountain climber, Mr Ganesh from Singapore, I won't be surprised if UNESCO decided to take back the title. Mr Ganesh went up to the peak of Borneo less than a week ago with his wife.
After coming down with a lot of difficulties (because of the bad weather) he gave me some shocking photos from the trip - the damaged done by some greedy people at about 2,000 asl. If you used to see the beautiful part of Kinabalu, be surprised with the ugly part of Mount Kinabalu.
Now, take a look at the other photos that was taken at the same time.

C'mon... Let us be more sensitive to the environment. For those who is going up to the peak soon, don't forget to take some more photos and email it to me. I hope that by doing this, somebody will hear us and take some actions to correct what have they done wrong.
