    Best on island
    Located between old Georgetown and Batu Feringhi resort area Gurney has managed to stay the top mall in Penang. Asians are now enthusiastic consumers of Western cosmetics which fill the ground floor combined with other world brands and jewellery stores. Further up are less expensive shops and restaurants serving food from all over the globe. The supermarket downstairs has been upgraded lately. There used to be a shallow bay of water in front of the mall, now it has been dried up to build yet more highrises.

    Shopper's Paradise!
    I love Gurney Plaza! You will instantly feel welcome the moment you step into the store as the location is fabulous. Open door seating at the ground floor with the breathtaking view of the promenade as well as various indoor fine dining restaurants to choose from. You can only wish you had more time to explore all the stores! Not mentioning the most upscale Cold Storage in the basement which has the largest selection of fresh meat and seafood from the world over. It is the one place to visit for a family event or even for young couples as it is the most hip joint catering only to the in-crowds! An all in one shopping paradise which offers day spas and hair salons, luxury watches, fashion as well as a fantastic departmental store, not mentioning the best cineplex in town!

    Leading shopping mall
    Parkson Grand is a high end department store occupying one corner of the biggest mall in Penang. Marks &Spencer has a smaller shop here too on the ground floor where main tenants are big international luxury brands. The upper levels hold all mobile phone companies and several smaller local businesses, mainly fashion. The food market in the basement is excellent and is surrounded by restaurants and take aways for all tastes.

Wonderful shopping complex in Penang, Malaysia. A must stop spot for shopping, dining, entertainment for locals and tourists visiting Penang. Food court shows the diversity of cultures. Many Chinese restaurants, few Indians and one Arabic. Plenty of stalls, kiosks for desserts, juices and jewelry.

Pretty well anything you need can be found here and as importantly there are so many food options. The really big food court gets very busy during lunch time and even with so many tables it can get full! I can't think of a cuisine that is not here. Maybe some African?

Besides the food there's everything else you can imagine. Its clean, modern and has AC!

One of the more trendy mall in Penang. We spent half a day shopping, eating, drinking coffee as it was a stop over for our cruise trip. Will definitely return back in future if we visit Penang again.
