While Sabah isn’t exactly known for nightlife, the scene in Kota Kinabalu keeps getting better, with plenty of things to do after dark. Whether you prefer your nightlife activities to be structured or more sedate, you can find it in Sabah’s capital city. These are some of the best nightlife experiences.

Night Shows
Traditional dance offers a window into a local culture, and the Sabah district of North Borneo is no exception. For a cultural experience after sundown, head to a Sabah dinner and dance show. Make an evening out of it by kicking things off with a tour of Kota Kinabalu’s busy night market and a trip to Signal Hill to take in the views of the city as it lights up for the night.

Dinner Experiences
If you’re idea of nightlife involves a dose of romance, don’t miss the opportunity to head into the countryside outside Kota Kinabalu City for a Malaysian hot pot hilltop dinner with sweeping views of Mount Kinabalu and the Crocker Range at sunset.

"Having been on dinner cruises at home in Australia, and being disappointed, we were pleasantly surprised by how upmarket, well organised and well catered this cruise was. The boat was clean and in good condition, the staff were very friendly and helpful, there was live music and the food was delicious and ample to cater for the passengers."..."

Malaysia Kinabalu Park Private Day Tour
"Great pick up and drop off from hotel in Kota Kinabalu. Very convenient. Enjoy the view of Mt. Kinabalu, the highest peak in South East Asia. The fish farm was unique because you could feed the carps from your hand, just let them bite the fish pellets off your hands, totally harmless because the carps had no sharp teeth. You could pet them like pets. What an experience. Walking in a hanging bridge across a tropical rain forest that's older than the Amazon jungle is another experience all together."..."
