Didn't know what to expect from here. Turns out to be a good collection of tradional and Asian food. Seemed a bit pricey but I think I'l let that go for the wide variety available. The sellers however seemed very desperate to sell their items.

One of the more enjoyable night markets available, with a nice variety of local food-stuff, souvenirs, and knock-off goods. Little high-pressure sales to annoy passers-by, and a willingness to negotiate a mutually satisfactory price on most items.

The first sight of this market got us excited and we wanted to go shopping. The stuff is cheep and bargain is your survival. Certain stuff is good and the prices are fixed. If you have the $ and the time then please explore this market for some cheep stuff. The market starts @7pm till midnight for all.

Went there with my family and came away disappointed. Vendors were pushy and asked for way too much. This place is more like a tourist trap for the novice buyer. For those who plan to buy, stick with the local vendors as they are more realistic in their prices. If you plan to buy from migrant vendors, good price to... More

The Night Markets are not like they used to be. This time (perhaps again due to Ramadan) they were only about ⅔ of their usual size. A large amount of the fake merchandise didn’t vary much from one stall to another and the opening prices were ridiculously high. There seemed to be only two stall selling pirated DVDs and their...

It is a bustling, hot, roadside market offering fake watches, clothing, handbags, luuggage etc. But to get good deals you need to bargain as if your life depended upon it! It extends for about 500m, and passes many restaurants, hotels and food markets. Open from around 7pm for 3 or 4 hours. Definitely worth a visit if you like a... More

We arrived in Batu Ferringhi during the school holidays and the market, with its often narrow paths, was really busy (and hot) with its wide selection of stalls providing plenty of bargains if you were prepared to haggle. The food court, tucked just away from the main road, provided a good range of well cooked food as well as much... More

Its a nightly affair that tourists head for the night markets whether buying or just to experience the surrounds of the hustle & bustle. Ferringhi is know different. Felt that many of the night traders are more reluctant to barter as in previous times although there are still good bargains to be purchased. Those stalls that would barter would normally... More

I came to this market 4 years ago and it was so amazing, it was bustling and busy. Come to now and its a shame to call it a market. There were hardly any stalls open. Would be great if l wanted t shirts. I spoke to a few stall holders and they have said next month will be better.... More
