It was fun to look around as the local fresh market. It comes with smells from the seafood and the fresh produce looked good. There are also a few stands for tourists to pick up souvenirs. It's worth a look around.

Unfortunately i found Laksa Sarawak, dabai, Terung Sarawak, and a local cake, Celurut... More

The stores were closing one by one. We managed to get things that we want to bring back as souvenir. Ikan Terubuk Masin, Telur Ikan Terubuk,... More

first i have to admit that we live in Asia. The market moved to a new place, which you can reach with the local bus for RM 1.50. There is nothing special about it, except if you never have seen local markets in Asia or Africa.
