If you are travelling in a group, renting a car in Kota Kinabalu can ease your travelling (flexible) and save cost. It is easy to drive and most destinations can be reached with the help of gps.

You definitely need a car as public transport is scarce to non-existent. You need to be careful as there is some awful driving but the roads are good quality and not too busy when we were there so getting around was very quick and easy.
