  • Not all of the stall open when we arrived (10am).. and then the place is too stuffy.. if you are with small children, please be aware always as there are goods they place on the floor..
  • If you are searching for traditional Malay cakes and cookies, Malay traditional food and spices, Malay attire for men, women and children alike, this is the place. The price is super affordable while the traders are also friendly
  • If you are in Alor Setar, this place is a must to go to. There are many stalls selling traditional Malay clothing, dresses and accessories as well as traditional food items. Some of my favorite items to buy here are the kuih Bahulu (type of cupcake) and Peneram (deep fried caramilized sugar with flour). There are a few stalls selling kuih Bahulu but my favorite will be Emanis stall and the Peneram is freshly fried by a makcik (Malay aunty) and her stall is at the corner on the tarmac. I get my Moroccon Jubah (long Arabic dress for men with Moroccan motives) which is hard to fine at other places, here in Pekan Rabu as well.
  • Traditional food can get here!!! Love it
  • Good place if you are looking for traditional Malay constumes, local crafts.

Where to stay in Alor Setar

The amount of choices for where to go for a night's rest is disproportionately small for a city of Alor Setar's size. Most of the options cluster in the center of the city to the east of the river. The hotels in general are three-star, but you can find a few four- or five-star accommodations if you look along the outskirts of the city. Also find a few budget-traveler options spaced around the city.
