    Esah Bt. Mamat - No 16, Pasar Payang: Mengkuang Woven Handicraft/Baskets

    by Arfah Updated Jul 17, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Aunt Esah shop

    The tiny shop is located inside Pasar Payang. It's quite tricky in there...there're so many shops in Pasar Payang...some don't even have any names...only numbers. This aunt sells plenty of different type of handicraft made from mengkuang (Pandanus odoratissimus)...baskets of different sizes, bags, floor mats of different designs n sizes, lamp shades n etc. You can see baskets n baskets hanging outside the shop. This shop also sells wind chime made from bamboo...big size only cost MYR25. Everything at this shop sold at a very reasonable price...n you can even bargain...but considering weaving a basket n making all those stuff are not easy work...so I guess if you can get a big size basket around MYR30-MYR40 is quite ok.

    What to pay: Depends on what you buy. A large wind chime cost around MYR25, a nice basket/bag sold at MYR20-MYR40.

    Kak Yah Keropok Losong: Must try in Kuala Terengganu

    by Arfah Written Jul 16, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kak Yah keropok losong - famous keropok lekor shop

    It's a shop selling many type of products made from fish. Most special here is its 'keropok lekor'... I don't think there's an English word for that. Keropok lekor comes in a a tube-shaped that resembles sausages.

    They are made from fish, flour and other ingredients. You can eat keropok lekor in two ways...either deep fried or boiled. If you don't like the fishy smell...it's better for you to take the deep fried keropok lekor...coz the boiled one usually have some fishy smell, especially when they are no longer hot.

    What to buy: Keropok lekor n other keropok (fish chips). These are must buys when you go to KT. Malaysian from outside Terengganu will usuallly buy these n give away to neighbours, family members n frriends.

    Dried fish chips last long...a few months, while keropok lekor can only lasts for a few days (refrigerated). It's best to immediately fry the keropok lekor n eat it while they're still hot.

    What to pay: At Kak Yah shop...20 pieces of keropok lekor will cost you RM5.

    Bazaar Warisan

    It's a bazaar...similar to Pasar Payang...only difference it's new. You can find batik shops here selling so many batik that come with so many designs n colours. Prices vary...depending on the quality of the material, designs n colours. My advice...walk around first...compare prices offered by other shops as well before buying.

    What to buy: This is a place where you shop for batik. They're so many of them...n they're all beautiful.

    Pasar Besar Kedai Payang: Must visit in KT

    by Arfah Written Feb 17, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pasar Payang

    It's not really a shop. It's actually a market selling so many stuff: clothes, batik n songket (one of Malaysian heritage), n other things as well such as fruits, dried fishes, brassware, local delicacies such as keropok lekor (made from fish) and others.

    What to buy: Batik, the price is really reasonable...always ask for 50% discount. Songket and brassware also cheap here. A visit to Kuala Terengganu is not complete if you don't buy any of those.

    What to pay: Batik around RM450, you can get it around RM200 or lower if you buy a lot. Brassware around RM130-RM200 (there's no way you can get as cheap as that in KL). Songket, around RM180 onwards. Do bargain n check out other shops. Price differs from one shop to another.

    Chinatown: Batik

    by zuyao Updated Mar 22, 2007

    Batik is probably THE thing you should buy if you are in Terengganu. The cheapest place to get reasonably good batik cloth is Chinatown (attested to by a local friend of mine!). There is a lot of variety here and you should really walk from shop to shop to compare the choices and prices. Bargain your way through and you'll get very nice cloth at reasonable prices.

    What to buy: Batik cloth, batik-motive dresses or gowns, souveniers

    What to pay: Bargain and get a good price!

    Pasar Payang: Central Market

    by zuyao Updated Mar 22, 2007

    The Central Market or Pasar Payang is a huge complex selling an assortment of items - fresh seafood, vegetables, batik cloth, souvenirs, poultry, salted fish, utensils, keropok etc. It's quite hot here in the evening and could be quite crowded. The small alleys and lanes are confusing. But this is the heart of Kuala Terengganu. The best place to shop for anything local. Bargain hard! There are also some stalls selling turtle eggs (maybe illegal).

    What to buy: Batik, salted fish and turtle eggs (if you are not against it!)

    What to pay: Bargain hard!

    KT Marketplace

    There is a small outdoor market place down by the docks where you can buy bottle water and some basic food items...

    Don't expect that you will find much in the way of cold beers for sale down here, as this is a fairly conservative Muslim area. (Must plan ahead: Boy Scout motto: Be prepared !!!)

    by eelaine Written Apr 16, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    local delicacies at pasar payang..

    it's a huge market smack in the middle of kuala terengganu town.. you can get just about anything there.. from food to crafts..

    What to buy: one souvenir that most ppl, even local malaysians, buy in kuala terengganu in batik.. it's a gorgeous painted cloth where you can make into our traditional malay costumes.. or anything else you wish.. other than that, you can also get some yummy fish crackers.. in malay language, it's called "keropok"..

    What to pay: batik prices ranges from rm50 right up to rm300.. it all depends on the quality of the cloth and the skill involved in painting the batik.. as for ready fried "keropok", expect to pay less than rm1 for a pack..
