Most of the roads in Sabah are in good, sealed condition, linking the major towns within Sabah. Travelling is quite convenient since the places of interest within the state are accessible by road. The capital, Kota Kinabalu, has direct access road links to the International Airport, to the Kota Kinabalu Port, as well as to the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park.
