Papar Old Town 2

Recently I went to Papar. Another town along the west coastline of Sabah.

Papar has a lot of old buildings with its characteristic blue colour.

The above is a roundabout near Kg. Langkawit (if I'm not mistaken)...In Sabah there are many places where in the middle of the roundabout the district municipal council put an "identity icon" to represent the place..as in Papar they put the traditional white Hat..I don't know what they call it in Kadazan...anyone knows??

This is the market...The old wooden market has been replaced by this..after a great fire consumed it..

Ah...this is the old wooden shop building I'm talking about..It has been there since the colonial era..a great heritage for Papar indeed..

There used to be many old shop lots but..some have been caught by fire. The remaining ones must be preserved.
