  • Good and affordable with the local items and clothing's for the mass and Tourist alike. There is a few Fresh Fruit Blended seller here: Price-wise: Its a SCAM!! RM10.00 for a small sized Pineapple! Taste-wise: Its sweet but with only mere 300ml of fresh blended ones inside it. Good for Tourist and their Instagram, but not for the Thirsty ones!
  • Very interesting market,it reminds me of Bangkok's Chatuchak! There were many cute stuffs. It was definitely worth a visit. Go see see and get sweaty!
  • a street market on Sunday morning where you can get a variety of traditional items such as handicrafts, fruits, vegetables, plants and more. it's very big and quite crowded. very lively
  • Only Sunday, it always crowded, need extra careful if you walking witg small kids. also maybe pickpocket target. Dont show your heavy purse..
  • My favourite place!! If you are looking for fruits plants to plant, Gaya street is the place to go to. And for those who looking for local souvenir, Gaya street have plenty of items for you to choose from. Welcome to my country!!
