In northern Borneo, take in local color and atmosphere at Kota Belud Tamu, or the Kota Belud Sunday market. Observe the ornate outfits of the Bajau horsemen, which pop with bright shades of various colors, and peruse a vast array of stalls selling artisanal products.

Often referred to as the “Cowboys of the East”, the Bajau horsemen take pride in the bright costumes that they and their steeds wear. Watch as they trot in formation, displaying their bell-adorned garb as they perform marvelous horse-riding feats.

In the market, peruse the fresh produce and prime cuts offered at stalls run by local farmers, cattle breeders, and fishermen. Find a great souvenir among stands offering clothing, handwoven baskets, jewelry, and other home goods.

One of the biggest attractions of this market is the sale of buffaloes, which is customary for natives to offer as part of a gift exchange during wedding ceremonies. If you are lucky, you can catch a glimpse of buffalo racing and the crowning of recently chosen Sarempak and Senisip Beauty Queens.
