This is a nice shopping complex . You will find it in major cities .but I found this one to be very cheap and nice . Of course the quality is also not so very good . But fun shopping .

At KOMTAR you can go to everywhere in Penang Island. Check on the board to find out the bus you need to take. If you're lucky, a very nice uncle will come to you and help you find the bus route.

Going into the malls at Komtar and the surrounding can fill all what one wants to buy in a single shopping area. This is because all kinds of shop from electronic to clothing/ garments to sportwears and groceries. Of course not to forget on the varieties of eateries there to choose from to satisfy your palate.

We spent a few hours wandering this area. Seems to be a new shopping mall connected to an old one. Lots of variety of stores. We had coffee at Starbucks but it was the worst Starbucks I have ever been to. They were very understaffed so the quality of coffee and service suffered. We could at least enjoy the air... More

We had to come here regularly to take a bus and on the last day of our stay, we had some hours to kill over there before catching the night bus. There are a lot of shops and foodstalls inside. We also went there to see a movie for 13rm each.
