Kota Kinabalu must play | Gaya Street is long like this
I live in the Green Brigade very close to Gaya Street, settled myself, the first step is to walk near the legs, casual stroll, by the way money.
When you first arrived in Malay, the biggest difference from the domestic is that it was simply wrapped in a "colorful" building. Of course, I will get used to it after a long time.
Gaya Street is also very convenient, shopping and eating are quite convenient.
If you want to run a little further, you can also call a car at the taxi stand. Of course, I still use the car software most of the time, it is better to evaluate the price.
The market near Gaya Street sells a wide variety of goods, but Datianchao is rich in products, so these items are just a random look and turn. Look at the most essential living conditions of people living here.
In Sabah, not only tourists, but even locals will not miss the hustle and bustle of people who enjoy the weekly street people.
Since Sabah is in the tropics all the year round, the market is very early on Sunday. Generally, the small vendors are out at 5-6 pm, and they are used for a variety of food and drink. Not only are tourists coming back, but many locals will also visit the Sunday market at this time.
Sunday market closed earlier, about 1-2 points, the booths began to collect, it is recommended that everyone go early, not so hot, the choice will be much more. There is a lot of fresh fruit on the market at
, which is very cheap. Be sure to try it!
Gaya Street is the main street in Kota Kinabalu City. It was rebuilt in the 1950s and 1960s and is a residential building with traditional downstairs shops. Just like the Chinese street in the 1990s, there are many Chinese shops in the streets. Starting early every Sunday, the hawkers screams spread throughout the street, and the items are all-encompassing, including fruits and vegetables, ornamental or edible fish, potted flowers, small pets, books, clothing, dolls, souvenirs and handicrafts, antiques, home-made. Pastries, food, etc. This is a very grounded market where you can find a lot of cheap tourist souvenirs here.
Kota Kinabalu is not big, it is long from north to south, narrow in east and west, and the bustling area runs from south to north. It takes 30 minutes to walk. The city's overview looks like the three types of cities in China. There are no high-rise buildings, everything is simple. Next to the Central Station, you will see a huge Chinese wind brand, "Guotai Min'an, Zhengtong people and" the simple wishes of the Chinese ancestors also affect the future people who are far away. This pedestrian street, in addition to a variety of local specialty shops, local Chinese Nanyang specialties, of course, also the old street cafes, bars, bakeries, etc., is very suitable for the sunset after the sun.
There is nothing particularly worthwhile to visit in Kota Kinabalu City, where local food restaurants are concentrated near Gaya Street.
Probably too early, many stores open at two or three in the afternoon, and dinner here is later than us.
GAYA Street is relatively old, both sides are old houses, the car stops are not very good to see, there are a group of pigeons on the roadside, we bought the food for feeding pigeons in this convenience store, the salesperson will be Chinese, There are still quite a lot of Chinese here, and it doesn't feel like playing abroad.

Gaya Street is located next to the Central Station in Kota Kinabalu. The entrance is a Chinese-style archway. There are many Chinese restaurants and Chinese shops on both sides of the street. You can taste authentic Chinese food and buy goods from China, giving you the familiar feel of your hometown. The street market on weekends is quite lively, full of goods at affordable prices, including daily necessities, local products, tourist souvenirs, clothing and shoes, vegetables and fruits, specialty snacks, flowers, birds and pets.
