Shopping!
Dec 2019 • Couples
This is a good place in Kedah where you can buy traditional snacks, clothings and items. We went there on Friday so some of the stalls are closed.

Place to buy traditional gifts & craft.
Feb 2019
New renovated Pekan Rabu. Its a place to buy traditional gifts & craft. Its a good place to get local snacks, clothing and souvenirs. If you want to get the local foods go up to the top floor either by stairs or lift. If you want to buy cloth and traditional material you can get it from the lower ground until the second floor. There's also a food-court on the ground floor to fill up your tummy with local food. The price of goods there is quite reasonable.

People here are very friendly. The complex opens at around 10am daily. Plenty to see, shop and buy. Although each stall sells similar stuff but it is still nice to walk around. A must-visit place. They have a food court for all to eat and drink, then continue shopping!

A place to get local produce.
Jan 2019 • Friends
This is one of the many landmarks in Alor Setar. It is a must visit place to get a taste of local way of life. You can find various items such as home decor, ladies attire, traditional food and most commonly people will look for dried or preserved fish product. Although the shops tend to sell almost similar items, you can try your bargaining skills and take home unique souvenirs while you're there.

A must visit!
Mar 2019 • Family
A must visit when you are visiting Alor Setar. It is legendary place among the locals and tourists. It can be described as the "Grand Bazaar" of Alor Setar.

Among the most seeked items here is the Ikan Perkasam (Fermented Fish) and Ikan Bilis (Anchovies). There are many vendors that sells this stuffs, but one must take the extra step to compare the prices as the difference can be up to RM10 per item!

The food court hosts lots of meals. My pick is the Nasi Lemak Mak Cun.

The toilets are also very clean (surprisingly!).

A Must Visit Place in Alor Setar
Feb 2019 • Couples
This is my 2nd visit to the new set-up. The place is well arranged and majority of the shops are managed by ladies. This is where we can get seedless tamarind paste, fresh tamarind, varieties of tomyam paste and traditional cakes& biscuits. Prices are reasonable.

Shopping centre for snacks and clothes
Feb 2019 • Couples
This the most established and old shopping centre right in the heart of town. It was rebuilt recently and houses many shops selling local cakes sweets and clothes. There is a nice food court. You can also get traditional malay clothes here. I always come here to buy the sarang burung biscuit for my friends.

The only negative thing about this ace is the absolutely horrible parking on B1 and 2.

The Only 100% Malay Business-Cultural Bazaar in the Westbank of Peninsular Malaysia
Jan 2019 • Solo
Pekan Rabu, a Malay business-cultural center, established in early 1920's. It was the place where current Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad practiced his enterpreneurial skills selling 'teh tarik' and banana fritters - during the Japanese Occupation of Malaya in 1940's. What was then, still resembles today, but in a more organised and structured environment. Lady's luck, you can personally selfy with Tun Dr Mahathir during his unscheduled visit, especially during his 'must-visit' stand-off in the holy month of Ramadhan every year.
