Cultural in Kota Belud

Once a year in October, the Big Market comes to Kota Belud, with local traders selling the best of regional produce. Market aside, Bajau horsemen ride in from surrounding villages on splendidly decorated horses and wearing multicoloured satin 'armour'. Buffalo racing and the crowning of the Sarempak and Seremsip beauty queens are part of the festivities.
