Malaysia: Borneo, Sabah: Kota Kinabalu – Musical Fountain and Sunday Market
When visiting Kota Kinabalu, do not miss the walk after the Sunday Market. Most of the markets in Asia are often on the brink, but this is really nice. A good atmosphere surrounds the market, playing live music, food and drink of all kinds is not a must.
The Sunday Market in Kota Kinabalu is open every Sunday from 6.00 to 13.00 on Gaya Street. On the Sunday market, this street is closed and the booths have a chance to play here. Here you can buy almost everything - clothes, shoes, hats, handbags, glasses, plumbers, souvenirs, drugstores, flowers, live and inanimate fish, fruits and vegetables. Looking for a pet? No problem, even you buy here. Animals are closed in small cages, and only fans enjoy this exposure. Something unthinkable for Europeans.
Perdana Park and Singing Fountain
Perdana Park is a recreational area that offers a variety of activities and restaurants. The park is a favorite place for runners, but it will surely suffice if you only pass through the ubiquitous heat. You can enjoy the beautiful sunset from here. Visitors are pampered with a wide selection of local restaurants. But the main attraction of Perdana Park is a singing fountain that runs from 19.00 to 21.00, Monday to Thursday. The weekends are a little longer.
The water fountain is synchronized with accompanying music and light. Especially children love to watch sudden water splashes accompanied by local melodies or classical music, such as Mozart.
The park is wheelchair accessible with wheelchair ramps and reserved parking spaces for disabled visitors. The entrance to the park is free of charge, but there are a lot of parking fees.
