Hi Everyone
We are travelling to Kota Kinabalu in a couple of weeks with a 10 month old baby and 4 year old. Does anyone have any suggestions for fun kid friendly activities? We're staying at Shangri La Tanjung Aru.

We're also travelling with extended family - 12 of us all together of all ages from Bub to teenagers to Nana age.

Well there are a lot of things to do with kids in Kota Kinabalu..
You can take them to the beach.. Go camping.. Learn how to paint batik.. go to different parks (Perdana, Tanjung Lipat..)
Take them to Kipandi Butterfly park, Tuaran Crocodile farm, the UMS aquarium..
They can also do all sorts of sports: badminton, football, minigolf, hiking, zip lining etc...

Actually Shangri-La already has a kid's club so if you just want to relax at the hotel then it's perfect for you ;)

Hope that helps
