Friendly and cheerful atmosphere at Tamu Donggongong. Vendors at the dried seafood stalls (salted fish, anchovies and shrimps).

The Donggongong township holds their weekly tamu (market) on Thursdays and Fridays. Not a huge market in this pre-dominantly Kadazan township, but it is easy to spend an hour or two here. An enjoyable market to visit.

Lightbox / Tamu Kinarut set

Kinarut is a town located about 17 km from Kota Kinabalu and just a few km from Putatan. It is one of the stops for the North Borneo Railway {out of commission for upgrading works}. A small town with just two rows of wooden shophouses and two rows of new concrete ones, the population here is 15,716 (circa 2006) consisting mainly Bajaus and Dusuns.

Kinarut is one of three places in Sabah with “kina” as part of its name. The word probably comes from the early connection with the Chinese. “Cina” is Malay for chinese. The other two are Kota Kinabalu (which derive its name from Mt Kinabalu, the 5th highest mountain in South East Asia) and Kinabatangan River (the longest river in Sabah).
