  • Need to do your shopping; buy from fruits to vegetable and live plant; can get souveniers and local handicraft. I enjoy the beautiful colours and radiant stall available throughout the area. Prices are relatively reasonable. Be sure to hydrate yourself and get sun block once heat get intensifies.
  • The place to buy your coffee beans... Anyway that's the reason why I always go there. You can buy plenty of other stuff as well. If you go early in the morning they're less people and the air is cooler. ;)
  • Please do not come to the Hajah Velma Borneo Seafood. They try cheat the price.. You must ask them to count twice.. Otherwise you will be cheated.. Remember the price of your seafood when you pick them.. The price will be changed when u want to pay.. For the dried fish etc. You can go to Mr. Mal stall no 11. Easy to get discount and a warm person to be friend.
  • Gaya street fair is a weekly event held every Sunday morning starting firm 6am to 12 noon where you will find local foods, clothes, local fruits, antiques, hardware, live decorative fish, cats and dogs, birds, fresh roasted coffee bean, packed tea, souvenir items, well almost everything else under the sun! A good place to visit and to bargain, especially close to 12 noon when the vendors are about to call it a day.
  • This is a must place for every visitor to go and visit where almost anything is sold here. From adorable pets to a homeware product, excotic plants and animals, the choice is yours. Luv this place.
