Kota Kinabalu Travel Tips

Transportation Around Kota Kinabalu

 

Climate
Malaysia experiences climate common for the tropics due to its close location to the Equator. Visitors can experience high temperatures and the humid climate as well as rain, which could be considered constants all year round. With daytime temperatures averaging from 32 to 34 degrees Celsius, the afternoon showers, which are expected during the conference period, will bring great relief to the humid conditions. We advise attendees to keep hydrated by drinking lots of water.

 

Food In Kota Kinabalu
One thing you can be certain of is that you will be overwhelmed by the huge variety of food available in this city. On every street corner you will notice people are eating and drinking while hanging out a bit with close friends or family, co-workers or business acquaintances. If you are staying within the city center you are probably best of at one of the foodcourts in the many big shopping malls. Food in Malaysia in general is usually quite good and of fine quality compared to some neighbouring countries. This doesn't mean that you should just eat everywhere you like.

Currency
There are many currency exchange outlets available in the airport, major shopping malls, and bank offices, where you may change your currency with the Malaysian currency Ringgit Malaysia (RM).

 

Languages
The main language for the conference is English. Bahasa Malaysia is the national language of Malaysia. You may hear other languages, such as Mandarin, and Tamil spoken by locals. However, most of the locals are fluent in English and easily converse in the language.

 

Electrical Plugs
The Voltage used throughout Malaysia is 220 - 240 volts AC, at 50 cycles per second. Standard 3-pin square plugs and sockets are used.

 

Credit Cards
All our main shopping malls and department stores accept credit cards. Major credit cards such as Visa, and MasterCard (American Express is also available, though not in as many places) are accepted. However, check with the store or restaurant on their card use terms before you shop or dine there. Also, keep in mind to bring some Ringgit Malaysia (RM) cash for good measure.
