Tamu Besar is an event held annually by the Bajau people of Kota Belud. Tamu Besar (which means Big Market) is a time when traders come out in full force with their best goods. The main highlights include a colourful parade by the Bajau horsemen, the Ratu Serimpak beauty pageant, and water-buffalo race.

Here are a few images of horsemen wearing their traditional Bajau costume and their horse.
