    Nine Levels Shopping Complex
    Wonderful shopping complex in Penang, Malaysia. A must stop spot for shopping, dining, entertainment for locals and tourists visiting Penang. Food court shows the diversity of cultures. Many Chinese restaurants, few Indians and one Arabic. Plenty of stalls, kiosks for desserts, juices and jewelry.

    Wondrous Shopping
    The A/C provided an instant relief from the hot Penang weather. The ground easy to navigate with a plethora of shopping. Enjoyed good massage, hair service and food. Easy to hail Grab rides (pick up and drop off) as well. Certainly worth multiple visits when in Penang.

    Exploring Gurney Plaza
    Gurney Plaza is like a 20-minute walk from my apartment so I decided to come and find something to eat for dinner. There’s a lot of choices but It’s hard to navigate around the mall. The thing that I like is that the restaurant bars outside are still open from the outside entrance where I went to The Barn Wine Bar.

    Penang's shopping mall
    This is an upscale shopping mall right outside George Town city center. Popular among locals, Gurney Plaza is the perfect place to understand local lifestyle. There are some local brands for clothing as well as both Malaysian and international dining options.

    Good Mall
    Anytime better than Gurney Paragon. We stop by at Gurney Paragon, just a coffee and few min walk and already bored. Gurney Plaza shops much more variety. Eateries in and outside mall area also better. Highly recommended to past time in this mall

Gurney Plaza is one of the Penang Islands premier shopping malls with most of the big names represented over 5 floors. Outlets range from M&S to Rolex - there is even an Factory Outlet store where there are many bargains to be had. No visit to Penang would be complete without a visit to Gurney. There are also a number of eateries some with outdoor seating.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but most of the stores were for makeup and perfume on the ground floor and also lots of watches. They sonhava other stores, but primarily band names like Mac, Chanel and Yves St. Laurent. Good options for food on the ground floor as well as the 3 and 4the floor. On the 4th floor I recommend a cafe called the THE HIDEOUT CAFE. It might be on the 3rd floor, I’m not sure now. They have everything from brunch, pizza and pasta to nasi lemok and German chocolate cake.you can take bus 101 from Quay bus terminal or Komtar bus terminal, it takes about 25 minutes max depending on the time of day and traffic.

Multi floored retail from food court to electronic outlets and fashion. The obliato high end stores too.

An indoor one stop shopping and eating extravaganza. Really hot or really cold countries (these days) have these massive malls to keep retail flowing.

People more likely to visit these places to escape the extremely hot and cold weather.

Not a giant retail fan, however I do get hungry from tim to time and like the aircon.

Well Done Casyln & Team... Excellent Customer Service in terms of explaining to clients with patience and she is very clear and precise as well... Very informative too as she knows all her work well. She also helps her Team in providing the best teamwork for customers. Nicole too did well in her daily duties and I find her very responsible and accountable of course. Future would be very bright as Managerial Position awaits You, as per se.

Well Done...

Both sides of my hair length is uneven (he is not a junior hairstylist, he is a senior hairstylist!) he cut it very quickly, as if he is rushing to another customer and, thinking to boost his sales, I was promoted to perm my hair. I had mentioned many times to him that I’m worried that I will look old if I perm my hair and what he said was it will be easier for me if I perm my hair, if not my hair will be flipping outwards. I thought that was true, and started to look forward to it . But on the next day, after blow drying my hair, my hair looked even messier with the curls flipping outwards. And I personally don’t like the hair style it makes me look older. 🙄 Overall, the service wasn’t too bad but it was definitely not good.

Pretty well anything you need can be found here and as importantly there are so many food options. The really big food court gets very busy during lunch time and even with so many tables it can get full! I can't think of a cuisine that is not here. Maybe some African?

Besides the food there's everything else you can imagine. Its clean, modern and has AC!

This is a western shopping mall with food court etc. Well organised with lots of shops but not really any which make you want to go back. Prices of western goods not cheaper unless on sales.

The last visit to this Plaza was almost two years ago. Still vibrant inspite of the unprecedentsl Coronavirus aka COVID-19. Spacious and many shop outlets and eateries and cafes. Multistorey parking place. Large weekend crowd and shoppers. SOP for safety and social distancing applies.
