On the last day of our Sabah trip, the tour guide brought us to visit Gaya Street Sunday Market since there is no more official activity in our list. Gaya Street Sunday Market in Kota Kinabalu is a nice place to buy some souvenirs for yourself or your friend and family. You can get some local stuff such as the popular local Tenom coffee, handmade items, key chains and fridge magnets.
Before the photos, let’s watch a video of our walk in the Gaya Street Sunday Market.
