Tourism Update

Tourism arrivals up to June recorded a nett growth of +5.4% compared to the same time in 2017, with continual increase of arrivals from market sources such as China, South Korea, Singapore and USA. We are looking forward to the new direct flight connecting Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) to Don Muang International Airport, Bangkok by Thai AirAsia this month. Bangkok will be the 21st international city connecting direct to KKIA.

Kota Kinabalu Marriott Hotel is officially operating, with rooms facing the South China Sea and our five nearby islands. Over in the East Coast, new packages on Tawau has been launched. Be sure to search Tawau - for the tallest tropical tree and the unique Tawau food found there.
