Typical roadside market but with more handicrafts then local produces. No doubt it is cater more for tourists and price is more than in town. But sometimes you do get fresh produces. On a fine day, you can catch a great view of the mountain.

Two types of stalls. One selling souvenirs and the others selling fruit, nuts and snacks. All prices are the same at every stall and they all sell the same thing. Souvenirs and tshirts are more expensive than Kota Kinabalu. Disappointing and a tourist trap for the unwary.

Nice and unique market😄 Many local food and fruits at the market such as "buah tarap", "kuih cincin", amplang and etc. I went there during the weekend of school holiday. And got a wedding ceremony at the hall near the Nabalu Market. Such a great place for wedding ceremony because got a great background view (Mount Kinabalu).

Nearby the Nabalu town market, there was a dedicated lookout to view Mount Kinabalu and surrounding rolling mountains and valleys. It was an excellent direct view of Mount Kinabalu but unfortunately for me, it was so cloudy that Mount Kinabalu could not be seen at all. The surrounding mountains was majestic, with clear view of some highland villages. The lookout provides one of the best viewpoint of Mount Kinabalu and its surroundings, and worth a visit while on a drive to Kinabalu Park. Nabalu town Mount Kinabalu Lookout is not to be confused with Kota Belud Mount Kinabalu Lookout. Both Nabalu and Kota Belud are two different towns found in Kota Belud District, providing two different viewpoints of Mount Kinabalu.

Plenty of souvenirs at prices cheaper than Filipino market. Shops selling mostly similar items tho. You'd have to look out for unique items (such as the wooden face masks) if you're keen on such stuff. Some shops selling sliced fruits and local food items. Only saw two shops/ cafes selling cooked food. Offers a nice view of Kinabalu. Most importantly, the stop here is for the use of the toilet, which is not the cleanest, that costs 30 cents.
