Theres nothing in the day but the street gets transformed into a lively market with loads of fun things for sale. The stall keepers aint too pushy and you can bargain with them. If your going to Kuala Lampur don't buy anything from here. Save your money for chinatown. You can get a lot more things and a lot cheaper.

Not too overcrowded, but numerous stalls selling cheap 'knock offs' & articles available throughout SE Asia. The food stalls are catering for tourists & much better local food can be had at much cheaper prices at cafes & eateries away from Batu Ferringhi. However the Lebanon Restaurant in the middle of the Night Markets has authentic Lebanese food & when... More

The Night Market is a lovely experience, great fun, good atmosphere, plenty of crafts to buy and a few genuine fakes! The sellers are fun, easy to chat to, no pressure to buy items and happy for you to look at and handle the goods on offer. You are expected to haggle but that too isn't taken too seriously. Overall... More

As the title says. Market is quiet long and provides a variety of items. The good thing about this night market is that you will hardly get harassed by the night vendors as you pass by; however that is about all that good about it. Prices are quite high when you compare it to the night markets in Kuala Lumpur.

The Batu Ferringhi Night Market is similar to many other markets throughout Asia. There is a wide range of goods from electronics to jewellery and the ubiquitous fake hand-bags. If you are staying nearby, the Night Market can be visited on your way to dining in one of the many restaurants or cafes in the area. The vendors are friendly... More

It's a typical night market except that it caters to the foreign tourists. prices can be a little high so be prepared to bargain. The vendors can be friendly but at times unhelpful. Overall, it is a good experience for those who want to see a local market with everything ranging from electronic gadgets to foot massages.

Compared to many night markets in KL, Malacca and the rest of Malaysia, this night market is specifically targeting foreign tourists. The merchandise sold were similar from one stall to another with not much variety. Fakes are sold everywhere and at a below average quality. Bargain hard and you may get prices at 50% off from the displayed price. The... More
