Jesselton - Kota Kinabalu

A visit to Jesselton Waterfront is a must, when you are at Kota Kinabalu the Capital of Sabah, East Malaysia. Here are some of the shots that I took during my last visit.

Entrance to the water front

Besides this landmark arch, there are beautiful fish sculptures along the Jesselton area...

Mackerel?!

The above shot is taken from the moving vehicle (cab). By the time we reached the jetty, the sky was overcast and getting ready for a downpour...

Jesselton Waterfront

Here is an old photo of Jesselton, which was displayed in the side walk of the waterfront...

Our cabby said that we could go to Signal hill and get an aerial view of Kota Kinabalu.

Clock Tower @ Signal Hill

From the observation deck, which is above the clock tower, I took this shot...

Stunning view on a overcast day!

The turquoise water, and the smell of the distant rain was very inviting, so went on a short stroll and was blessed with this view!

My favourite photo had to be the second to the last one (although all are equally nice!). I love the contrast in that photo.

I am surprised they still kept the name Jesselton. It was called that when I was growing up in Sarawak in the 60s, and later they changed to KK.
