Eating seafood at the Sinsuran Night Market @ Kota Kinabalu is a dream come true for seafood enthusiasts. At this seafood paradise, you’ll find lobsters that are three times the size of my hand, luxury groupers that cost only a fraction of the price compared to West Malaysia, exuberant crustaceans and fantastic grills to mention a few.
