  • Every Sunday morning the Gala Street will be closed until approximately 13: 00 for traffic and it come hundreds of merchants and rebuild their stalls with various things... Clothing, shoes, bags, toys, household goods, tools, aquarium or Zoo shop article... Unfortunately also live fish, turtles, chicks, rabbits, birds, dogs and cats are offered for sale! You can try many local dishes such as rice cake or pudding, various pastries, dried fruit but also freshly made juices or shakes or freshly ground coffee from the Highlands. It's worth a trip anyway! The traders are all very friendly and non-intrusive and get discount on advertised prices immediately.

  • The Sabah Holiday Bazaar is only once a week, 7 to 13 in the morning of Sunday, everything is sold, nothing strange! Having bought a durian, the Sabah restaurant did not accept the durian into the room, so the scene was on its own. Now there are trafficking selling painted planks, you can tell your boss what you want to write in English, a rm15-18. Phoenix pear juice and watermelon juice is directly mix mixer dozen, directly take the Phoenix pear and watermelon inserted straw drink, super novel, the market also provides plant color painting on the body, kind of like the floral texture, very beautiful.

  • This is where you can buy the things that are hand-made by the owner of the stalls, here the things that is sold is usually about Sabah, this place can be your souvenirs shop and it's more CHEAPER than most of the souvenirs shop in the shopping mall. But this place is only open on Sundays from 7a.m. to 12noon, this place is usually crowded about 9a.m. to 11p.m. and it's hard for you to even move around because people keep slowing down to check on the stalls. This place have all the things you can get, e.g, souvenirs, jewellery, clothes, disc, foods and drinks, watches and also pets!!
  • A very touristy place. Relatively clean. Came here to buy some orchids. Did not disappoint.
  • Great place for tourists have some souvenir. You should be there early morning to feel the environment. This market start early morning until 12PM, so don't miss out! 👍
  • Good place for tourists. Can see Sabah in one place. Early morning is good to go.
  • The beef noodle are very local and yet nostalgic at the same time. Nothing outstanding of the shop but the food is very impressive.

Where to stay in Kota Kinabalu

In the area of Sepanggar you'll find the main set of hotels, ranging from simple and mid-priced, to the more luxurious with good sea views. Move away from the coast for more space and privacy in resort-style hotels, which offer a range of facilities and comfortable, sometimes quirky rooms and apartments. Farther out still, you'll find backpacker motels, giving easy access to the surrounding natural attractions that, after all, are the primary reason for being here.
