    Plan your trip to Parit Buntar on Friday, over night at Friday night to visit the Friday Night Market. A market by local traders that offer anythings from fruits, raw food, cooked foods, local delights, clothings, young plants, sundry goods, hardware, cd, dcd, toys, medicines, shoes, slippers, I mean anythings. Do spare at least 60 minutes to have a walk and bargain for what you like.
    The weekly event starts at 4.30pm and usually ends before 10pm. The most difficult thing is to find a good car parking if you drive. If you are not in hurry and do not mind to walk a distance, the mosque parking lot is the most convenience place for you.
    Remember to look for many local food available for your dinner. You may chose from laksa, satay, yong tau foo, cha kuew teau, roti canai, jagung panggang, kacang rebus, Malay kuih....Don't forget to pack / take away some more for supper.
    The Parit Buntar Friday Night Market has been exist since 1970ies. It grow from a gathering of hawkers occupied only one street until now it cover the whole old town area of Jalan Teh Peh Kong, Jalan Menteri, Jalan Pasar, Jalan Syarikat and Jalan Syed Hamid.
