Equipped with 6,000 stalls, the Tawau Tanjung Market is said to be the largest indoor market in the whole of Malaysia. The ground floor of this market is where you can find foodstuff such as fresh fruits, keropok amplang (amplang crackers), Indonesian-made dried crackers, and other fresh produce.
On the first floor, you can find dried preserved food such as dried salted fish, dried anchovies and dried prawns which Tawau is famous for. If you’re a fan of interesting wooden crafts and decorative items such as hand-woven baskets, placemats and other souvenirs, the top floor of the Tanjung Market, which is known as ‘Pasar Gantung’ or Hang Market, offers a plethora of goods. Don’t forget to haggle before you buy!
From any part of Tawau, take a taxi or a bus to Tawau Tanjung Market. From the airport, Tawau Tanjung Market is located about 15-20 minutes away by taxi.
