Tanjung Dumpil presented a new fresh view of world famous sun set of Kota Kinabalu City which was one of the eight great places to watch sun set in Huffington Post.

Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia — Often overlooked in favor of more high-profile destinations nearby, Borneo’s coastal town of Kota Kinabalu offers a dramatic backdrop for sunset-viewing. Hit the local food market for some dumplings or noodles, grab your picnic blanket, and set up camp on the town’s beach. From that spot, you’ll have a perfect view as the sun falls behind Mount Kinabalu (the highest peak in Borneo).

Nothing much more solitude for a moment to experience a beach with no tourist interest other than the locals who enjoying the beach without being reminded that we are actually in the middle of the city.

The only reminder of being in the city is the constant scheduled airplane landing on the Kota Kinabalu International Airport which brought millions of tourist visit in a year in mainly from China and Europe.
