Mount Kinabalu Craft: Souvenir Shopping
On the way from Kota Kinabalu to the Kinabalu National Park, you cannot miss a parking lot full of small souvenir shops. From here you have a great view of the mountain if the weather is good, and it is a great place to do some souvenir shopping.
The great thing about this place is that there are plenty of little shops to look around in and that the salesmen are not annoying and just let you have a look. The prices don't really differ between the different shops, but some shops do have different things for sale. Prices are all rediculously cheap, so you don't really need to bargain.
What to buy: You can find lots of different souvenirs here: from hand-made instruments to clothes and from statues to kitchen-gear. I can't imagine you won't be able to find a nice souvenir here.
