  • If you love to bargain, then it's an experience. There's really no difference between the flea market in KL and Penang. Prices are the same, products are similar. Only the souvenirs with Penang imprinted make memorable gifts.
  • Selling almost same stuff. Mostly all inspired branded bags and shoes. Difficult to get grab or uber at night.
  • One of the best foods night market on the island, more for shopping than for food. You'll find an endless array of stalls selling everything from magnets to tech accessories, to counterfeit goods. Get your haggling game on, as nearly everything is up for negotiation. There's a good amount of food options outside of the market, so if you're feeling hungry, all you have to do is cross the street.
  • Great market, really friendly people. They don't really hassle you too much, but expect them to reel off what they have to sell at you. Longbeach and pushpa's are great food halls to get amazing food at amazing prices
  • I am rather harsh on the review of Batu Ferringhi Night Market because it wasn't what I expected and I didn't enjoy the experience. What I was expecting was a night market with a mix of street food stalls and shops selling authentic local produces. However, there was a limited number of street food stalls within the market itself. There are quite a number of food places available though from places like Long Beach Cafe or The Ship - which are within close proximity to the market but the lack of street food vendors that are integrated into the market is a major minus point for me. The market though mainly offers a wide variety of counterfeit products - ranging from shoes, belts and bags. They do sell iconic Penang- centric graphic T-Shirt but most of the products seems to be targeting tourists. A lot of the stores are actually a repetition of one another and they essentially sell the same products. All in all, if depends on the objective of your travel. If you are looking for a shopping spree - this may be a good place as there are tons of vendors selling a wide variety of souvenirs and accessories - although counterfeit they may be. But if you are more of a foodie who wants to explore the night market for the local street food by the roadside kinda thing - you are better off not including this as part of your itinerary.
