During the day, visitors peruse colourful handicrafts, traditional snacks, salted fish and pearls harvested from Sabah's oceans while at night, the scenery transforms to a lively food court waft with smoke and scents from fish, prawns, crabs, squid and clams grilling on charcoal beds to the delight of foreign tourists.
