Kota Kinabalu extends for a few km between Likas bay and the airport. The city centre consists essentially of modern buildings, because Kota Kinabalu was almost completely destroyed by British and US bombing raids during World War II. Only very few colonial era buildings survived the destruction. The centre of KK is however quite pleasant and interesting due to the various neighbourhoods and mix of ethnicities. Kampung Air near the waterfront is the budget accomodation area.
