Photos: Markets in Kota Kinabalu
Kota Kinabalu in Sabah has several markets. Among these are the main night market which is packed with food stalls, the so-called Filipino Market which sells souvenirs and jewellery and the various produce and fish markets in the city itself or further out.

|Never knew tomatoes could be so pretty. Also at the night market|

|That’s right, you’re seeing correctly- blue fish. They taste like normal fish, apparently|
|And if you’re lucky, you may even get to hear some local music|
Why do I love Asian markets again? They’re great for people-watching, chatting with the locals and if it’s a food or produce market, everything is always fresh, cheap and tasty.
