City Mall in Kota Kinabalu is – to date – the newest, completed shopping centre in Kota Kinabalu.
This small-ish shopping centre is located on the Lintas/Kolombong highway, just past the turn-off to Damai in the direction of Kolombong.
City Mall is on the fringes of Kota Kinabalu city, about 5 minutes from Damai and 8 minutes down the road from Lintas. City Mall is approximately 15 mins drive from the centre of Kota Kinabalu, depending on traffic conditions. For tourists taking a taxi, the fare should be around RM20.
A selection of unscheduled minibus taxis also pass the mall. Catch them from the bus terminal next to Wawasan Plaza in town.
For those who are driving, when City Mall is at her busiest, parking is severely inadequate.
An underground level of parking and is complemented by parking around the perimeter of the mall. A rough, unsurfaced area at the back of the mall provides additional parking, but cars crowding the sidewalk, double parking and general grid-lock is a City Mall hallmark.
Inside the mall is fairly spacious, consisting of 3 main levels and a mezzanine level. It has open areas with wide walkways and shops both inside the shopping centre, as well as outside mall areas. The anchor tenants are Giant Supermarket, CT Department Store and Popular Express Books.
The main food and beverage outlets are located along the shopping centre’s front and includes Veda Blue, Olde Station White Coffee, Pizza Hut, KFC, Starbucks Coffee, Big Apple Donuts and Old Town White Coffee.
On the third, or top, level of City Mall, is the Food Paradise food court. A variety of cuisine is on offer here at affordable prices.
The bigger tenants of City Mall, especially those located on the inside the shopping centre, close at 10pm. The outside tenants, in particular the restaurants and coffee shops, tend to stay open till late, and it’s not unusual to find them open past 11pm on a week day and past midnight on a weekend. Most of City Mall’s tenants open around 10am daily.
