Sabah Tourism Upcoming Event: Tamu Besar Kota Belud

25th – 26th October 2008

The biggest, most colourful and most exciting Tamu is back this October! Check out the vibrant atmosphere at this traditional open-air market, a perfect opportunity for you to get an insight into the life and culture of the people of Kota Belud. It is at this grand 3-day affair where you will find food, fresh produce, seafood, traditional medicines, clothes and even livestock sold by the society of Kota Belud.

The local community will come out fully dressed in their respective traditional attire and the Bajau will stage a spirited display of their riding skills on ponies in dazzling costume. Catch sight of water buffaloes– rarely seen at smaller tamus, they are brought out for racing, competition and for sale at this annual event.
