When in Tuaran, be sure to visit the bustling weekly tamu (market). Once a week, the town centre comes alive with a variety of sights, sounds and smells. Early birds can grab a variety of local delicacies for breakfast, including pastries and cakes such as kuih lapis and fried noodles. Check out the fresh fruits and vegetables as well as the unique local crafts. The Kadazandusun of Tuaran are known for their handwoven baskets and the tamu is the perfect place for a good bargain.
Most ‘tamu' operate as early as 6am and close by 2pm
