Returned to Batu Ferringhi after our first visit 10 years ago. Good to see the Night Market still operating. The quality of the products or range is not as good as they were 10 years ago, but it was still enjoyable to walk around and see the hawkers and the pedestrians, it added to the end of an evening.

I loved these night markets...they were stress free and without the sellers being "in your face" trying to sell your their goods. Yes, there was bargaining. Yes, there were people cajoling you into buying their goods, but it was done in an almost respectful way! Plenty of goods to choose from here and some great eateries along the way! Well... More

Revisited the market in Penang in June after many years. I must admit, there used to be much more variety than what there is now. This time I felt a little disappointed. A lot of the same products being sold everywhere. Would be great if there were more crafts being sold. Still worth having a loom though if you haven't... More

Copy t shirts, watches, bags, etc that you can buy everywhere in Asia. These markets make it difficult to walk about in the evenings and do not add anything to Batu Ferringhi.....to the contrary they make it the same as Bali, Phuket, etc

night after night you can walk through or past these markets and still not see it all. the stalls have grown further up the street each way and go back into the car parks too. they even seem to be starting a little earlier which is great for the tourists who want to get the shopping done before getting full...

We were staying very close to the markets and ended up walking through them most nights. The business owners are not overly pushy (unlike some other Asian places) and mostly were happy to find exactly what you were looking for and played the bartering game without being over the top. Definitely worth a walk through and purchasing items.

If cheap tat - name on a grain of rice anyone? - is your thing you will love this night market. If you are quite happy that your new " Hermes" bag cost $5 and has a label that reads Kerme than get straight to the Batu Ferringhi night market. It is stall upon stall of fakes - even fake... More

We enjoyed these markets that don't really seem to kick off until after 8pm. There was a good variety of items, and some unique local designs etc. we love Asian markets but don't enjoy being hassled every time we pause. These markets were a little easier on us with a more laid back feel.

The stalls start to set up from 5:30pm. They stretch from The Park Royal all the way up to Golden Sands resort. There are some stalls that are selling very similar items but that is by the by. We found some amazing bargians during our 2 week stay in Batu Ferringhi. Some stall owners we purchased from several times and... More
