For anyone visiting Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, this is one of the highly recommended places to visit if you are here on the weekend. Make sure you come around 7-8am when the market gets into full swing. There are quite a number of local coffee shops and restaurants where you can also have your breakfast, some of them very authentic. There are halal and non-halal food places here too. 

For those on a budget, you can also refer to my other articles on Free Things to do in Kota Kinabalu as the list focuses on a walking tour around KK. And if you are venturing out of KK, you can see this article on the Best Places to Visit in Sabah as it details the newer tourist attractions around the state. 

After the market visit, you can then proceed to explore the other areas around here, namely the craft market, fruit market and if you are up for it, the wet market and also fresh fish market which are all situated along the waterfront area.
