#4 of 17 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. Our Kota Kinabalu trip planner makes visiting Night Market, Kota Kinabalu and other Kota Kinabalu attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • I like this place. People come here to get all their daily fresh supplies of fruits and vegetables. One thing that I love most about this place and for sure you will too is that, it is built so close to the ocean and this is definitely awesome view😇
  • It was our first visit. Good experience as all the seafood does look fresh. If you wish to pack it back to KL they does provide packing service too to keep the freshness. As is it cheap? I guess if you are local you would able to get it cheaper than tourist like us.
  • Listed as one of the main attractions I was disappointed with this market. There's not much variety of things here, not colourful and the vibe isn't cheerful either. If you don't have anything else to do, sure, come and have a look. Otherwise you have much better markets in other towns in SEA.
  • This is the central market of Kota Kinabalu city, a place where to buy fresh vegetables, fruits, dried fish, dried shrimp, dried anchovies, poultry produce, meat, you even can find groceries items and local titbit here. On the 1st floor, you will find hawker center selling food, bags, shoes and clothing. There is no air conditioning so don't go here at noon as the place can be stuffy. Occasionally, your nose is greeted by stench smell of rotten fish as next to the building is where the fish market is. I wouldn't say this place is clean. But if you have never visit a wet market before, try visiting for the unique experience.
  • A very popular wet market, you can find many ingredients if you're planning to cook. Seafood market is behind of the dry market. Alots of cheep crabs, big fish and prawns can be found here.(crabs with RM10 found here. The food court is at the first floor. Local food provided as well. There's also a big market for shoes, bag beside it. Fruits, salted fish and pork is at ground floor.
