Sightseeing of Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
Despite the massive destruction during the Second World War, some ancient city buildings have miraculously survived. Among them is the Atkinson Clock Tower built in 1905. It was erected as a monument to Francis George Atkinson, a famous political figure. The tower is a truly unique building: it is completely built of wood, without the use of additional fastening elements. Over the years, the beautiful tower has been repeatedly reconstructed, which did not prevent it from preserving its original appearance. Like a hundred years ago, you can set your watch by the tower's clock.
