    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!!

    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.
