Sunday Morning Walk @Kuala Kangsar Road Morning Market

One of the activities which we try to include to our itinerary when we travel is visiting the local market to check out the local produce/products/food available and experience its sights and sounds. In Penang, a hive of activity and a riot of colours awaits you as you step into and make your way along the stretch of market stalls and shops along the Kuala Kangsar Road morning market.

A Hive Of Activity and A Riot Of Colours

To the uninitiated, it can be a little unnerving as it can get quite chaotic and chock a block during its peak (we experienced that on the Sunday morning) with everyone so engrossed and intent on what they need to buy and of course spotting and grabbing the good deals makes it all the more rewarding and fun, ‘Fortune knocks at least once every man’s gate’ – I tend to agree, at times more than once for the lucky few!

Mother And Child Morning Market Walk

A good thing to bring the young ones visiting, give them a taster and experience of what a wet market (pasar) is all about … the sales pitch, the bargaining, the proprietor/customer chit chats, the smells, the hustle and bustle, the colours, etc. etc. , a world of difference from shopping in the ‘sterile’ food section at the leading hypermarkets (Tesco/Aeon/Giant/etc).

Those Are Really Fresh And What A Deal!

And when you are feeling hungry, or just want to take a breather and rest and relax over a cup of tea or coffee after all the intense marketing, head off to the nearby open air food court (along Chowrasta Road) which serves a variety of food and beverages. Open air but you are sheltered from the hot tropical sun with a proliferation of overlapping jumbo umbrellas.
