What people are saying:

We arrived at the market at about 10:30 and stayed for about two hours. It was very hot and crowded, so be prepared to bring water and wear appropriate clothes, and also bring your bag close to your body. There are tourist-oriented items that you can see in most markets in Malaysia, but there are also some items that are worth buying. Always ask for the best price, you can buy bargains. There seemed to be many puppies and kittens in the cage. They looked very hot, crowded, and were given a tranquilizer. If you take children to the market, I will not bring a stroller because it is too busy and there is not much space between the stalls and the aisles. This is the place to go when traveling to Kota Kinabalu. The Sunday morning market is only open on Sunday. Its original intention was to let farmers near Kota Kinabalu sell their products once a week. But now, due to its particularity, it has become a tourist market. Compared with 15 years ago, there are now more industrial products than agricultural products. As of May 2019, there is still a lack of Tarap fruit on the market. I was told that Tarap fruit will be available in August and it is seasonal. During this visit, Tarap fruit happened to be an off-season fruit, so its price was 60 Gitlin/pc. I hope we can see more genuine sellers (agricultural products, handicrafts, local food, cultural products) instead of industrial products in the market.
