#5 of 11 in Shopping in Kota Kinabalu
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.

    A lively but never dared to buy food really is a night of South-East Asian city. It is enough to ridicule while saw is a sultry look, around and around. You might find the bargains.

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.
