Gaya Street Sunday Market opens from 6am until 2pm every Sunday. It is a must-visit place for tourists to Kota Kinabalu. Very crowded market yet colorful. You can find all sort of things — local and not-so-local — from traditional souvenirs to pearls to medicinal herbs. If you plan to visit Sabah, make attempt to be around in KK on Sunday. It is a phusical experience, full of sounds and sights of Sabah and Sabahans, all cramped in one busy street about 1-km long, closed to traffic every Sunday. Most hotels include a visit to this market in their tourism package. If you stay in a downtown hotel, the market is within walking distance.
I happened to be here one fine Sunday morning in December 2012. Enjoy the photos I managed to snap.
