Here lies, another perfect spot for an Instagram worthy photo.

However, enter at own risk as this place is home to some drug addicts and is infested with a lot of mosquitoes!

In between of KK International Airport & Sabah Police Headquarters lies a train track that is hardly in operation anymore. If you haven't got the chance to take photos of yourself on a train track, then make this your chance to take one while you're in KK city.
