A short walk away from the city center of Kota Kinabalu is Gaya Street, a stretch of road which resembles the Petaling Street in the Peninsular. Items sold range from over-sized umbrellas, cultural items such as batik and sarongs, fruits and flowers, arts and craft, footwear, antiques and souvenirs, food and even pets and herbs.

Pet store, shopping and restaurants all in one!
Just a few minutes walk away from the busy city center of Kota Kinabalu is this street. Personally for me, after having personally visited Petaling Street, I conclude that this is a much safer version of Petaling Street with a much better choices in items.
One thing that first caught my attention in this stretch of road is actually the amount household pets for sale. From poodles, to Persian cats. to hamster, to parrots, it's really a great place for you to find a pet. Be warned though, these pets are not of pure breed and one should not get cheated in spending more than you should.
Next, the food selection in this street is also massive! I know that all of us here love hawker stalls that offers quite a variety of food such as fish balls on a stick, rojak and also some of Sabah's traditional food. Besides that, there's also some cafes here on the building blocks. One of my favorite would be a Bak Ku Teh shop(can't recall the name) which serves Klang Bak Kut Teh. However, don't expect something like what you'll find in Klang!
