A Town Where The Actress Dtk Maria Manado Used To Perform

Kinarut is a small town in the Papar District. Kinarut is busy on every Saturday when there is a Tamu. It is at this place that you can get river or fresh water fishes like 'Pelian', but they are not cheap selling at RM35/kg. Kinarut started as a Train Station Town and a new Train Station had been completed, just waiting for the new but overdue railway tracks to be completed.

The old wooden shop-houses are still intact and it was in one of these shop-houses that the actress Datuk Maria Man ado used to stay to perform at the cinema which had now been replaced by a Sabah Electricity Building.
