Besides the Pesta Kaamatan (Harvest Festival),
Tamu Besar is one of the most colourful tourism events in Sabah. Bajau people have been famous for their
colourful costumes, handicraft and horse riding skill. And the best time to appreciate all these features
is in annual Tamu Besar. Don't worry if you miss it this year. I have shared over 200 photos and 7 short video clips below.
