Hunting for authentic local food or gifts and souvenirs from your Sabah trip?

Kota Kinabalu Handicraft Market is a well-known favoured shopping market to locals and tourists. The market is almost opposite the main minibus station next to the Centre Point Shopping Complex in Jalan Tun Fuad Stephens. Here, you will be able to find a variety of cheap, mass-produced souvenirs such as textiles, jewellery, and even bamboo goods sold in the hundreds of cramped stalls.

The best thing about this place is that you will never know what treasure you might find! Here’s a little advice – Try picking up some local lingo to enhance your bargaining skills and you might walk away with a steal.

Location: Jalan Tun Fuad Stephen, Pusat Bandar Kota Kinabalu, 88000 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
