  • Sunday open only to large scale am stalls in the market. From clothes, food, souvenirs, antiques and pets, many kinds of commodities in this emerging market. If you are not necessarily friendly places to cuddle up with on a Sunday schedule

  • Great market. Item ranges from home grown vegetables,foods, handicrafts, clothes and more. If you're driving, there's limited parking area unless u park in the nearby malls and take a 5min walk. Great for tourists and even locals. And always be careful of your belongings. Great little outing on the weekend.
  • There are lots of things to buy, and very huge size of market. You'd better to bring your fan or cold water. The street is very narrow and long, so keep the distance with your child, if you have.
  • best ! variable goods are available here on sunday . a great place to find local vegetables , handsome betta fish , it's just that i feel pity for the dogs and cats and hamster that they're selling here . i really think that animals should be free too . by their own will . poor animals .
  • You have to be smart enough to bargain on a few items that should be not more than 50-70 MYR. The best things I have picked up were the original looking but seconds (second to best quality) sports wrist watches, good quality dry bags 70-100 MYR, travel memorabilia 10-20 MYR, Jeans, surf shorts and many more items. It's a good place to pick up antiques however you have to look for them. You can also spend your day sipping on amazing juices that are as low as 1 MYR or munch on to some Sheesh kababs while you shop your day out there.
  • I work here and the people are very nice. Although the weather is sometimes changing there is still a lot to see here!

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.
