  • Komtar now has plenty shops to look for. But, the only stationary outlet might be only one. Easy to get ATM but poor wifi reception. 
  • 聽的士司機講,光大中心係檳城最大嘅購物中心,佢分新舊兩邊,當然係新果邊靚D。但係,實際上光大中心都無物好行,食肆唔多,購物都唔多。我同朋友喺度行左成晚,收穫就無,而且喺商場收工嘅時候離開,都唔可以走大門口,不論職員抑或客人都要行後門離開。 
  • 据说是槟城最高的建筑,当地的地标之一,附近有许多的商铺,交通四面八达,来往机场的大巴就停靠在附近,从光大步行到爱情巷也就30分钟左右

  • Very old place. last 5 years ago to be a place must go before hari raya to buy new cloth. But now no more.
  • So far ok but it's so damn jam and no place to park, it's so hot weather down the street no rains only hot sun
  • This shopping complex and offices has been there for quite some times since i was in school days..accesible parking at multi storey parking beside the complex. Best time to do shopping is at noon till 9.00pm..located at the centre of Penang island..very easy access to the complex from penang bridge or by ferry..main attractions for locals and tourists to do sight seeing..window shopping and shopping..
  • Tallest building in town. Easy to recognize. Busy traffic nearby.
  • It's so bad for reaching in another point in Penang you always have to come one of these main terminals. :/
