Gaya Island Vacation Packages

Gaya Island is part of Kota Kinabalu, a well known city with a population of 460,000 proud residents. Gaya Island is situated 7 miles (11 kilometers) from Kota Kinabalu’s downtown. If you are arriving by air, Gaya Island is about 7 miles (11 kilometers) away from Kota Kinabalu International Airport.

Gaya Island is a great place to stay while you are exploring Kota Kinabalu as some of the city’s main attractions are nearby. Two of the places not to miss are the marvelous Tunku Abdul Rahman Park and the remarkable Sutera Harbour. Also, well worth the effort are Plaza Wawasan and the Sabah State Mosque.

Those interested in exhibits and shows will find some interesting museums, exhibits and venues in and around Gaya Island. Spend a while browsing the exhibits at the Sabah State Museum.

If the weather is good head outside and appreciate the nearby parks and reserves. Explore the nearby wilderness by heading to the Signal Hill Observatory Platform.

To browse through stores or enjoy a light meal, browse Centre Point, the Kompleks Asia City and the Kota Kinabalu Central Market.

Spend a few hours high in the stands of Likas Stadium, cheering on the Sabah FA. On match days follow the procession of red and white, to the stadium, then after the final siren sounds, join fellow sports lovers in the nearby pubs for a post-game drink.

After spending the day taking in the sights around Gaya Island, put up your feet and relax at one of the area’s bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. Take your pick from the Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu, the Gaya Centre Hotel, or the Klagan Hotel.
