Kota Kinabalu is an architectural and cultural delight. Marvel at the miraculously balanced Tun Mustapha Tower and mystically "floating" Kota Kinabalu City Mosque, try your hand at haggling at a popular craft market, and then stroll through traditional tribal dwellings at Sabah State Museum.

After pickup, your coach whisks you to Tun Mustapha Tower. Admire the dazzling glass façade of this 30-story round structure that appears to defy gravity. Then, get tips from your guide on bargaining for treasures at the Sinsuran Handicraft Market, a favorite of locals and tourists alike.

Travel next to the majestic Kota Kinabalu City Mosque, which appears to magically hover over the surrounding lagoon. After seeing the mosque, head to the Puh Toh Tze Temple, a beautifully crafted Buddhist temple featuring 10 large statues of deities lining the stairs leading up to a statue of Goddess Kwan Yin at its entrance.

Break for a sumptuous lunch, and then absorb the art, culture, and history of the state and its 32 diverse ethnic groups at the Sabah State Museum. Enter the main building, resembling a traditional longhouse, and wonder over a whale skeleton exhibit, paintings from Sabah's most famous artists, and ancient Chinese ceramics. Roam through replicas of traditional tribal homes at Heritage Village, located in the museum's lush botanical gardens.

Your tour ends at the historic Atkinson Clock Tower, the oldest structure in the state to survive World War II. Then, it's back on the coach for your air-conditioned return trip to your hotel with a better understanding of the people and history of Kota Kinabalu.
