We walked to this place from KK city. We thought it would be good, as per tourist information center at KK. The fee is 15 RM per person. But we did not much of the birds or insects. The mangroves are good and the walk through the mangroves is good as well. But they could do it better. I have seen better mangroves at other places. I would suggest unless you have specific interests in mangroves, don't go there.

The blue and white mosque looks very beautiful under the blue sky. We went there at about 11 am, and rent the muslim robe for 3 RM each. However, the mosque was closed at 12am to visitors for the muslim praying. Therefore, better to fo there early. When going back, we took the bus which stopped just at the front gate of the mosque. The bus took us to the roads which are far from usual visitors' interests. We were so happy to take this very local tour~

We joined the local tour to have a group travel to the wetland by boat trip via hotel travel agency counter. It is quite memorable and natural scenic spot but you needed to resist long driving from downtown of Sabah.

Don't come here unless you are altruistic enough, i.e. to support encourage the conservation efforts. From a "tourist attraction" viewpoint, there is nothing of note & hardly any birds to see. The place is not well maintained & was pretty deserted on the day I visited (Sunday). The state of Sabah has many natural attractions but sadly KK Wetland Centre (formerly known as KK City Bird Sanctuary) is not one of the better ones.

I used to frequent this Wetland on a weekly basis. Returning to it after a few years of absence made me sad - rubbish everywhere, the entire place needs some serious TLC. really hope the management will buck up and maintain the place properly as it used to be a haven of wilderness filled with birds and mangrove goodness.
