The market is ok for the first time lots to see and a good time had with a bit of bartering, the stall holders are very friendly and most come up with some amusing lines, look but dont buy until you have seen all the stalls lots have the same stuff so you can play one off against the other....

I love night markets. This really was poor. The merchandise is almost the same as what you will find around other countries in Asia but what this placed lacked was atmosphere as well as good food/snack stalls. There really is no point coming here.

Batu Ferringhi Night Market sells merchandise, which I shall not call cheap and nasty out of respect for the people trying to make a living there, but it is all the same: Watches, T-shirts, pirated DVD's, etc.; if you have seen three stalls you will not see anything different in the remaining scores of stalls. In the previous years I... More

8.30pm and several stalls still not open. Stalls all sell same shirts, trinkets, fake bags etc that can be found over Asia. Didn't encounter and pushy salespeople though which was a delight. No idea how long they're open til but next time I'll leave it til 10 hoping for more stalls to be open.

great food stalls. Grab a table, order and enjoy. Other stalls not too interesting. Go for the food court.

Can be busy but if you seen one you see them all. The same poor quality of products as you can buy anywhere in Asia. Make sue you set your price low as 10 meters away they wll sell the same thrash.

We visited around 7.30pm. It would be better to visit later as it was still very hot and humid and some stores were not open or set up yet. I had a pram and it actually wasn't too hard to get around with. Selling all the usual things you see at typical markets in KL, Singapore, etc. Good for a... More

We visited the night market in August 2014. Plenty of opportunities for a bargain. Ask what the price is, offer them half and haggle from there. There is also the Ferringhi Gardens restaurant along the way. It is spectacular. Not bad beats the regular shopping centre style shopping a Gurney Plaza.

Be prepared to walk along narrow sidewalks with lots of people especially during the weekends. Conveniently located for visitors staying at Batu Ferringhi, it has all sorts of things from restaurants,pubs,massage parlors to souvenirs,funky t-shirts and watches. Many of the merchandise there are priced higher than usual, so don't be shy to haggle for a good deal. Take your time... More
