Sabah and its surrounding regions are famous for handicrafts and souvenirs made by local tribes. A small number of markets and shopping streets in Sabah support these indigenous groups by presenting the products made by them, 'Tamu Market', a Sunday Market, is one of such markets. Here you can buy special local stuff like betel nuts, exotic fruits, vegetables, dried and fresh fish, sarongs, etc., Gaya Street, another Sunday Market in the capital city of Kota Kinabalu, is the most famous market for street shopping. Every Sunday, the street is closed for traffic as a trade fair is held here to sell products like traditional fabrics, antiques, souvenirs, fruits, flowers, arts and crafts, footwear, and herbs.
