KOTA KINABALU, July 5:

Global online news portal The Huffington Post named the state capital as one of the best eight places around the world  to watch the sunset.

The article also suggested that these places were the world’s best if you are thinking about spending time in retirement, especially to savour the sunset.

Huffington Post described Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, as having the perfect view as the sun falls behind Mount Kinabalu.

“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).”

The other seven listed are: Siem Reap, Cambodia; West Lake, Huangzhou, China; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Nice, France; Tralee, Ireland; Volcan, Panama; and Punta del Este, Uruguay.
