    Prangin Mall: Knick Knacks

    by cheekychic Written Dec 17, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Deemed to be the largest shopping mall in Penang, but not all shops are opened. A girl can find almost everything she wants in this mall, mostly knick knacks at reasonable prices. There's a departmental store, supermarket, a cinema, variety of small eats shops, computer & dvd shops, hair & beauty salons, etc..

    What to buy: Mostly casual clothes, fancy handbags & accessories, DVDs.

    What to pay: Most prices are fixed, but can still try to bargain 10% discount.

    Prangin Mall

    You can find just about anything here...just make sure you have alot of time up your sleeve if you love shopping. There are so many shops to see, only got to see half the shopping centre :-(

    What to buy: Clothing, shoes, watches (anywhere from 10RM on) , CD's(6rm), DVD's (8rm), computer software(6RM), cameras and electrical items (beware some are not that much cheaper than home at all) , food, giftware, handbags etc

    What to pay: Expect to pay about a third of the normal Aussie price. You can ask for their best price but this is not the place to barter.

  • Vision First: Buying glasses -- Vision First A+++

    by Janetbau Written Aug 12, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I cannot praise Patrick and his staff high enough for their quality service and friendliness upon my recent visit to Vision First. You can find positive reviews about them on this site and others and I wanted to add to that. It was a flying visit for me to Penang and on the first morning of my visit I went straigt to the shop which is located behind Pizza Hut in Prangin Mall. I wanted a new pair of glasses for myself and had my eyes tested and 24 hours later my multi focal lenses in a modern Esprit frame were ready. I also wanted to get glasses for my son and had with me his Aussie script but it was incomplete as it did not have the pupil diameter on it. Apparantly this is a common occurance with Aust optometrists so it you are taking a script with you o/s make sure that it has this on it. Patrick rang the Australian optometrist for me to get the complete script. Can you imagine an Aussie optometrist ringing Malaysia for the same thing??? I was even driven back to the hotel after making my purchases which also included 2 pairs of Ray Bans. By buying my specs here I saved approx $300AUD per pair and at least $100.00 per pair on the Ray Bans. A+++ for a fab service. :)

    Shopping mall-Komtar: Step back into the 80's

    by traceyspacey Written Oct 11, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are various shopping malls located around the Komtar building (Penang's tallest building). We went into a couple, one of which made us feel as if we had stepped back into the 80's (it had the name Super Komtar?). From the way the building was laid out to the glittery jewelery that was for sale everywhere. More than half of the shops looked as if they had been closed down for a while.

    For a better shopping experience try the Prangin Mall.

    What to buy: Anything that you think that you cannot buy at home. For me it was a simple piece of costume jewelery to keep as a memory.

    What to pay: How much do you want to spend?

    On my last trip I did most of my shopping at Gurney Plaza but I prefer the Island Plaza on Jln. Tanjung Tokong that is less crowded. You can find many of the same shops in both malls, for example, Factory Outlet Stores, Mango, and Vinci. Thereýs also the Midlands Park Centre at Burmah Road.
