Kudat, a three-hour drive north of Kota Kinabalu, is famous for its rich cultural heritage and blending of ethnic groups, especially the Runggus, the largest and the main ethnic group living in Kudat. The Runggus, a sub-tribe of the Kadazandusun, are the main ethnic group living in the Kudat region.
