Event Details

The Tamu Besar is the biggest traditional open-air market held in Sabah. Organised annually in Kota Belud, the Tamu Besar is a plethora of smells, sights, and sounds as vendors proudly set up their stalls to exhibit and sell a variety of goods, ranging from fresh produce such as the traditional Bajau delicacies, to traditional handicraft like the serdang and dastar (traditional handwoven cloth) just to name a few. The main highlights of this event include a buffalo race, the crowning of the Ratu Sarimpak (Sarimpak Beauty Queen), and the colourful parade of horses and Bajau horsemen – known as the “Cowboys of the East”. This is one tamu not to be missed!
