  • 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. :/
