  • Nice market that definitely you should visit if you are staying in kota kinabalu on Sunday. Lots of fruit, local snacks, toys and souvenirs. Mainly many local people who purchase their home garden and kitchen stuff. All prices I found on the high side and there was almost not negotiable. If you are going to visit this market I'd asked around an hour or 7. Later it is so busy that there is almost no longer walk through.

  • The best weekends market around town. So many things you can find here. :D
  • Nice and great. Lots of things to see and buy
  • This market is catered towards locals and is a great place to taste new foods. You can buy pets, plants, fruits, vegetables, and many types of trinkets. The market starts at 6:30 in the morning so come early before the sun gets too hot. Also there are fewer people earlier. Many places serve food along the streets if you want to sit down and take a break from walking around for a while
  • Nice and cheap market selling anything from food to fake shoes. Not made for tall people!
  • Places many things to explore...but have a hard time to find car parking there ..need to park 1.5km away. Very hot weather..
