Sandakan Central Market

Near the entrance are a couple of souvenir shops dealing in orangutan T-shirts and pearl necklaces, but otherwise the ground level serves as a wet market with fresh veggies, fruit, poultry and more dried fish than you've ever seen in your life.

On the second floor you'll find cheap eats at the cooked food centre. Each stall has its own specialty like Malaysian curries, grilled fish or Chinese-style vegetarian food.

Not a lot of tourists find their way in here, so be prepared for a lot of attention. The market is at its most active from 06:30 till 17:00.
