Sabah Tourism: Tamu Besar, Kota Belud

Date: 30 - 31 October 2010

The ‘Tamu' is Borneo's traditional open market. This grand event showcases Sabah’s largest alfresco market while featuring the unique customs and traditions of the Bajau community. Throughout this event, the natives of Kota Belud will be out and about parading in their best traditional costumes.

The Bajau horsemen known as the ‘Cowboys of the East' will dress in their traditional best and ride horses extravagantly decorated with colourful fabrics and jingling bell collars. The younger generation Bajau gentlemen will get in touch with their age-old heritage as horsemen of the east in an exuberant display of horsemanship. There will also be a parade of ponies dressed in gorgeously ornate costumes.

A wild, wild, East experience with a Bornean twist!
