    The Tun Mustapha Tower is arguably Kota Kinabalu’s most prominent man-made landmark, with its intriguing architecture. Its exterior, made primarily of glass, possesses a blue hue that complements its artistic cylindrical shape. It also appears to rest on a base that resembles the bottom wider half of a cone. It makes for an even more compelling sight at night, when its lights are fully ablaze. (Image Credit: Ramdan Nain | TrekEarth)

  • Pre Rup

    Pre Rup

    To Do

    Pre Rup is often considered to be one of the last great temple-mountains in the world. This is largely in reference to the structure of its complex, which strongly resembles a pyramid. Many of its levels house a number of lotus-inspired towers, showcasing its grand scale and the balance in its construction. It is composed primarily of laterite and brick, and this makes it an ideal place to catch both sunrise and sunset, as these are the times during which its colours are most radiant.

  • Kerak Telor

    Kerak Telor

    To Eat

    Kerak telor is a culinary creation of the Betawi people that is essentially a unique take on omelets. This traditional Indonesian dish requires eggs to be cooked with glutinous rice, prior to being served with dried shrimp, serundeng (fried shredded coconut) and shallots. It is seasoned quite simply with just salt, pepper and some spices. Most Indonesians consume it as a snack or side dish.

  • Prahok

    Prahok

    To Eat

    Prahok is a fermented fish paste that makes frequent appearances in Cambodian cuisine. While it is often used as a dip of sorts, it is also enjoyed by being grilled in a banana leaf before being served with rice as a meal. The latter form of consumption is best matched with a serving of green vegetables. Be warned, though – prahok is very strong in smell and taste!
