Atkinson Clock Tower 

Built in 1902 in memory of Francis George Atkinson, the first district officer of Jesselton, as KK was then called. He died of a tropical disease in the same year at the young age of only 28. The tower is on a hill beside Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, just a few min away from the city centre.

The Signal Hill Observatory

The Signal Hill Observatory is 10 min walk up hill from the Atkinson Clock Tower and offers a good view of the city center.

Green Connection Aquarium

The Green Connection Aquarium is located 10min outside the downtown area by taxi. The best place to see the aquatic wildlife of Borneo without leaving the city. Help conserve Sabah wildlife by visiting here. Lots of things to see and do - touch a shark, stroke a snake, watch a turtle. Opportunities for interns & volunteers or simply to dive in the giant tank and feed the fish.

Sabah State Mosque
