"TAMU"

SABAH'S VIBRANT MARKET

 

 

Kota Belud District

 

The tamu or Sunday market of Kota Belud has been famous ever since it First began. Originally known as the Tamu Darat (Land Market), it was held on neutral ground where the indigenous Dusun could meet the Bajau, Irranun and Obian Muslims, as well as Chinese traders, to barter or purchase goods.

 

Today, vendors come from all over the West Coast and even the Interior to take part in the tamu, which offers an unrivalled opportunity for discovering some of Sabah?s many different ethnic groups, as well as exploring an astonishing variety of produce. Everything from herbal medicine to mountain-grown vegetables, wild orchids to chili-laced dried fish, and luscious tropical fruit to edible seaweed is on sale. Medicine men hawk their wares; Irranun women enjoy an impromptu concert as they await buyers for their musical instruments; Rungus down from their longhouse preside over handmade brooms and woven baskets while Bajau women turn out a constant stream of deep-fried cakes.

 
 

This special event is normally held every October.

 

 

TAMU BESAR

Once a year, Kota Belud hosts the Tamu Besar - an annual event where people flock to this quaint district to join in the festivities. Tamu Besar - which means Big Market - is literally the biggest tamu organised throughout Sabah. It is a time when traders come out in full force with their best goods and the local residents highlight the colourful cultures of Kota Belud. A sight to behold is the Cowboys of the East. Bajau horsemen dress their horses and ponies in resplendent costumes, while displaying their unrivaled horse-riding skills. A great time to witness traditional sports such as buffalo racing and the crowning of the Sarempak/Senisip Beauty Queens.
