This market opens for visitors starting from 6 AM until 12 PM every Sunday. You can find local foods, souvenirs, pets, plants, flowers, shirts, coffee, shoes. I visited Gaya Street Sunday Market in Kota Kinabalu city center in the middle of January 2022. Overall the place is clean and not too crowded due to Covid-19 restriction. You can walk for about 700 meters along the market. To enter you must scan body temperature and most already complete 2 dose of vaccine. Will come back for sure.

Visited during Raya 2019. This was my 3rd visit after a few years. It has improved in the variety of stalls but still mostly selling the same touristy stuff. Good place for getting souvenirs as you can bargain. Tried the infamous blended watermelon juice and it was really refreshing especially in the hot weather. Great place to stroll would definitely recommend to others.

Nothing out of the ordinary, but a nice Sunday market to visit nevertheless, with locals selling their goods.

Keychains, batik prints, fruits, rattan bags were among the things sold.

It does get very hot.

Nice shop selling a variety of buns along the street(non halal) but the name escapes me.

A typical type of sunday markets with a range of foods, clothes and knick knacks. A good atmosphere with the street being blocked off

Likes the place, selling food, cloth, fruit, accessories even a pet. The road is closed for this Sunday market. Visit early to avoid a lot of people.

A typical type of Sunday market where they showcase local products yet its a bit pricey. As a Filipino we have a lot of that back home so I only bought shirts with sSabah design😂 plus we went there late like 10 in the morning so hot hahaha Lastly I tried Laksa and I’m not a fan of curry 😊 but the restaurant is very good very organized and fast in service 👍🏼👍🏼Let’s not overrate😉 this is my honest review

The place has become far more commercialized compared to when i first visited 10 years ago. I would say it is worth a visit only if you have extra time. It has become a place to shop for souvenirs. Somehow i felt the place has lost a little bit of its soul..

Local market always fun to visit, on Friday and Saturday night at Gaya street have night market for food/drinks and show, at Sunday have day market, if you around there on those days then it’s good place to be and see the local culture.
