The heart of Kota Kinabalu's culture is Gaya Street, a vibrant Chinatown market, which is especially enchanting when you drift amongst the scarlet lanterns of the Chinese New Year night market. Whilst you wander along the architecturally diverse streets, you’ll be awed by the craftsmanship of the City Mosque which appears to float in the sunset waters of its reflecting pool.
