    Hi , I will be visiting Kota Kinabalu , Sabah around the month of August for a college event. We made a plan on doing a event at the Padang Merdeka but it is currently under renovation. Are there any suggestion for me as a traveller for any replacement fields?

    • You might want to try the Sport Complex in Likas or probably University Malaysia Sabah. UMS has quite a number of fields which are very suitable for any type of event. I’m not sure what kind of event you wish to conduct but you could probably consider Tanjung Aru Beach and Perdana Park as options.
