    Balik Pulau Market: Buying fruits and local agriculture products

    by SLLiew Written Feb 28, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Balik Pulau Market (Pasar Balik Pulau) is right in the middle of town. It is the most frequently visited destination of day trippers.

    It is a wet and dry market.

    Besides the hawker stalls, there are many fruit stalls and local agriculture products sold daily.

    As there are tourists and daily local buyers, prices can be different and so do not try to act like a local but use your bargaining skills.

    Bananas are popular buy when durians, rambutans, mangoosteens, langsat are not in season.

    Tesco Penang: Tesco - Hypermarket

    by SLLiew Written Dec 20, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tesco, the UK hypermarket chain, opened in Penang in 2006. It sells electronics, clothes, groceries, etc and with the crowd, apparently is doing well.

    What I like is the location that is at the coastal road right after the Penang Bridge, near the exit turining into Green Lane (Jalan Masjid Negeri).

    Parking is free and it opens late until 11pm and later on weekends. Next door is a popular complex called E-Gate for the young and trendy.

    Bee Chin Heong, Praying Articles & Antiques: Chinese Chatchka Heaven

    by tayloretc Written Jul 21, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you ever needed a life-sized and a half gold-painted Buddha, or 50,000 paper lanterns, or a dozen 6-foot-tall vases with a tree’s worth of artificial orchids, or anything else to decorate your home, restaurant, temple, town, whatever, in a Chinese theme, you need to visit this place. You probably need to visit it anyway, just to see what “excess” really means, and what “disparity” really means, because the rest of the area is an impoverished wasteland in comparison.

    It’s a huge space that rambles across an entire city block (note the address), and is jammed with, gees, with too much of everything. In the photos, the egg-shaped carving is about 4 feet long; the gold-painted section goes back to the left perhaps 30 feet, and is packed; the statue outside the door shares the sidewalk with proportional stone dogs; and yes, the building is very pink.

    You can buy just one of something, and I can’t believe they wouldn’t ship.

    CTY Aquarium is here in photo (the tall building in brown color) located at Burma Road, nearby Kedah Road. This Aquarium is probably the biggest in Penang, tourists interested in aquarium fishes might want to have a look.

    Gurney Paragon: Nice Mall

    by HebaM Updated Jan 30, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's such a great place to hang out. Even if you're not into shopping, you'll find something to do
    Too many dining choices and entertainment as well. And the supermarket there is definitely worth a visit
    It's a huge mall and it's easy to get lost inside
    Unlike the malls I visited in Kuala Lumpur there are great sale and discounts on the clothing/shoe stores
    However, Beware of Pick Pockets... I got pick pocketed there and I lost $200
    Don't change money from the currency exchange shop inside the mall... very bad rate

    The Queensbay Mall: Roof top parking and the view

    by DaHongHua Updated May 26, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Queensbay Mall is a big shopping mall that you can easily kill whole day time, either to shop, window shop or just to dine.
    I arrive while peak hour thus could not find a parking space until after the 7th floor to the roof top. The light on top of each parking space if occupied is red illuminated, just look for green light or else you need to climb to higher level.
    Try roof top parking, you can view Penang from higher point and the 2nd Penang Bridge from Queensbay Mall.

    far left corner is the 2nd Penang Bridge

    Road side night bazaar - more than 100 stores: Night bazaar

    by l_joo Updated Apr 15, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At night if you go to Batu Ferringhi which is along the road where The Ship restaurant located and the Lone Pine hotel.

    A place quite similar to Bangkok's Khao San road except that this one has luxurious hotel surrounded to make it a distinct feel of Islanders rather than the backpackers' heaven.

    Shoppers are luxurious class but items on sale are still as cheap from VCDs to Batik clothings and many other stuffs.

    What to pay: Mostly budget

    Shoe Shopping

    by donnatravel Written May 28, 2008

    Try VINCCI (same as VNC) and NOSE. They have several items on Sale. Very affordable, almost half the price compared to Manila. I bought about 5 pairs in 1 hour! The designs are really nice though most are made of fabric, and minimal genuine leather. Nevertheless, I highly recommend these 2 brands.
