Night Market, Kota Kinabalu, Kota Kinabalu

(2.6/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Explore the stalls of Night Market, Kota Kinabalu, filled with heaping piles of juicy tropical fruits and spicy chilies, buckets of fish and shellfish, and pyramids of plucked chickens and cuts of meat. Seafood is the specialty here, but you can also find an extremely diverse range of other dishes to try. The pungent intermingling of fish and cooking smells don't make for the most pleasant of eating environments, so consider purchasing some food and consuming it elsewhere. Take a look at our Kota Kinabalu itinerary builder to schedule your visit to Night Market, Kota Kinabalu and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
