An experience for an evening

Famous maybe, but not uncommon. There's still a bargain if you're prepared to haggle. Some of the local artwork definitely worth considering. Fun, for an evening.

This is the best market in my opinion - lots of different products to look at and buy - prices are negotiable and not that different to the local shopping centers (but cheaper than Gurney Plaza etc). You can spend a good couple of hours after a meal, strolling down the street checking everything out - our kids were very... More

This is a very small night market and, in my opinion, really not worth the visit if you've experienced the large markets found in Thailand.

Took a cab from Georgetown to Batu Ferringhi. Was expecting to see crowd due to the hype that I heard from. But amazingly there wasn't much of a crowd. Things sold were mostly duplicates or replicas. Looks like they have foreigners to mend the shops. Mostly a boring walk. But if you like replica items or some dirt cheap clothings,... More

The markets are great if you like these cheap markets, but it is so spread out along the road that you need to ensure you have your walking shoes. The markets are a long way from George Town and parking was a bugger, That said, there is plenty of great food and some local food halls where the food is... More

A good place to walk and browse through the stalls during the night. They have a lot of designer knockoffs and some souvenirs. It is usually crowded during the weekends. Make sure you bargain as the starting price are often expensive.

Its ok to visit if you are staying around Batu Ferringhi area for a stroll or enjoy some food and drinks. Free shuttle bus if you are staying in Hard rock Hotel. If you are staying in Georgetown area you might want to think twice before making the journey here. Not worth it. Do not have the expectations that this... More

I guess it's a good place to get some souvenirs. They are not cheap, so bargain. Unfortunately time has changed and we saw mostly China-made goods. Where are all the local craft stores? The only plus was that there were many food centers in between the street.
