Tamu in Kota Marudu

Have you been to Tamu Kota Marudu? Tamu (flea market, sunday market) at my hometown start to open on Saturday evening until about 2 pm on Sunday every week. To everyone who have never been to Kota Marudu before, my town is just 130 KM from Kota Kinabalu and take roughly about 2 hours drive from there. When I search Google about this, I found that many website write that this tamu held at Goshen. That is outdated and wrong information. Its held at Tamu site, near Kota Marudu vegetables market.



Many people come to Tamu because we can get more choice of items and the price are cheaper than normal days. This is mainly because most seller in this Tamu is people who plant their own fruit trees or vegetables. They came here mostly just want to meet an old friends and selling their items is just a second priority. I can get vegetables, fruits or livestock almost 20% cheaper than market price when I go to this place because Kota Marudu District council only charge RM2 per seller a day. You can get craft, children toys, vegetables, fruits, clothes, local foods and sometimes antique stuff in this place.


Kota Marudu don't have any mall or big supermarket, this Tamu is the only place people can come and socialize. On Sunday, you can see many people from all sort of life coming to Kota Marudu. People from Ranau, Kota Belud, Pitas, Kudat and all near by district also come to sell and buy in Tamu Kota Marudu. Beside buying their daily need items, people can meet their friends and talk about what happen in their life. Its like if you want to meet an old friends, just remember when will the next tamu will be. You will most probably found your friend here.


A lots of changes had been happening in bandau Kota Marudu but I hope this Tamu will keep on going. I know it will be staying there for a long time. Most of you from peninsular Malaysia had been going to Gaya Street Tamu, right? Try coming to Kota Marudu for a change. You can find cheaper item thanKota Kinabalu Tamu. Hehehehehe.... Do I sound like a promoter?

Chayo-chayo....

Hey Belle, I've been to KK twice but I've never had the chance to go to Kota Marudu. It looks like a great place to go visit. I miss KK so much. Love island hopping & snorkeling with the fishes :)

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Belle, I love these markets....or pasar malams. Can get nice cheap foods too.
I still have 2 neckties I bought from a pasar malam. Rgt 2.00. And my friends think its designer maybe $30.00, ha ha.

I have been to Sabah, KK many times but always tied up business meetings and dinners, tada chance walkabout to sightsee let alone hantar resume ke application to a girl when there, ha ha.
Have a nice day, stay young, Lee.
