Gaya Street Market

Souvenirs, handicrafts, live animals, chicken pieces, potatoes and coconuts. You will find all the ingredients for a "malaysian curry" and more. This is the most interesting market in town with its bustling crowded stalls and lanes. Get there early for beautiful photos in the morning light. Don't forget to haggle the price.

Do & See

The centre of town is based around the waterfront area, which is home to a charming mix of old and new – trendy bars, restaurants and hotels line the area, but are contrastingly interspersed with traditional markets, fishing ports and hawker stalls, a great blend.
