Karamunsing Shopping Centre is one of Kota Kinabalu’s oldest shopping centres, but have kind of been renovated over recent years.

The unfortunate irony of these upgrades and renovations is that while they are increasing floor space, tenants and visitors to the centre, parking is reduced every time they build a new extension over what was previously parking space.

Shoppers therefore park pretty much anywhere, blocking lanes and causing what sometimes is Kota Kinabalu’s most annoying traffic crawl around the permitter of the main building.

Inside the shopping centre this situation is mirrored by cramming every possible inch of floorspace on the 1st floor with a stall, kiosk or display of some kind, forcing visitors into a single file in most places, making you wonder what would happen in a situation where everybody has to get out in a hurry.

The upper 3 floors of shopping are slightly less packed.

Once you’ve fought your way through the traffic crawl and found a parking space (likely on 6th floor rooftop), and then negotiated your way around retail obstacles allowed to litter the walk ways, you will discover Kota Kinabalu’s best IT and computer hub inside.

Spread out over the 4th, 3rd and, to a lesser extent, the 2nd floor, is a thorough collection of IT related stores selling everything for netbooks to notebooks, tablets to transmitters and every computer peripheral in-between.

Eateries, hair and beauty salons, appliance and furniture stores and clothing shops make up the rest of tenant’s list.
