bargaining is the key at the street markets for clothes and souvenirs. There were a lot of shops also selling fake bags and perfumes. Be wary of electronic items though they are really very cheap here...

we've been before but honestly this so called market offers little. The stalls are a mix of home produced items none of which is uniquely from Penang. I won't bother going again as Penang has a lot more to offer.
