Markets or Bazaars

Eary morning markets, morning bazaars and night markets are great shopping venues to visit in Malaysia. Visitors to Penang will find many markets and bazaars scattered all over the state. 


Many of the markets are busy by 7am and stalls spill into the surrounding streets with vendors all sorts of things - cooked food, fresh fruits and vegetables, poultry, clothings, kitchen ware, etc. Here you can certainly sample the best of  Penang street food!   

Make a visit to Chowrasta Market (Penang Road) , the Jelutong Market (Jalan Jelutong) and Air Itam Market (Air Itam) on Penang Island, to get a taste of Penang.
