Kota Kinabalu with Kids

24 Aug 2018

We were staying for four nights at Le Méridien Kota Kinabalu. First evening we had dinner at Suria Sabah mall. The next morning we were picked up at 8:20AM from the hotel's lobby heading towards Pulau Gaya. 

 

After a quick boat ride we arrived at the island's PADI 5-Star Dive Centre:

Went through some necessary briefings:

 

before doing 3 dives, one in open sea. It was a great experience with the boys. Our instructor Michael (from California) was excellent.

Our second morning was spent lazying around the hotel pool followed by a visit to Imago, KK's latest mall.

Watched Jason Statham try valiantly to make the Meg bearable but it's a dud of a movie. 

 

Morning of Day 3 the boys and I headed out to Pulau Manukan for some jet-skiing:

Arriving at Pulau Manukan:

Sayangi Malaysia:

Dinner was with my friend from law school some 25 years ago at King Hu, Tanjung Aru (the duck is very nice):

In the end there was something for everyone: scuba-diving and water-sports for the boys, snorkelling + shopping for the ladies.
