Can you buy copy designer watches in Penang? If so where and how much. Are they more expensive than KL?
You can buy them in most markets - check out the night market in BF.
That said, you get a much great selection in KL. Price - well, that depends on how good you are at haggeling (slip into Monty Python mode)
Was the second question about the weather?
Always hot/humid - sometimes heavy showers. Take a 'brolly - good for rain and sun protection.
The night market at Batu Ferrenghi has a huge range. I went there in the month of Feb and it was hot.
My mum bought a watch 6 years in Penang and when we return in June she is buying a new one only because all the gold has come off!
If you are staying for a number of nights in penang and in BF then shopping in the market is what most people do each evening.
I bought two "Rolex" watches from BF night market 14 years ago that are still working (just keep replacing the batteries).
As Esor says,there may be more choice in KL but there is still plenty to choose from in BF.
Hey aliB, any luck booking Eden yet? They are allowing me to book for August.
Petaling Street (Jalan) in KL is better, the choices are wider.
I never saw many good copies in Batu. If your doing a stop over in KL take a taxi yo chinatown. They have great copies of Alange & Sohne.
