The newly upgraded and opened Chowrasta Market is very cool! Had a quick pass through this century old market today while having my car parked in its new multi-storeys carpark, it’s delighted to see a beautiful addition into this gorgeous George Town.
Unfortunately, most of the vendors are still having their stalls by the road instead of moving in, but I am pretty sure the government will work out a plan to filled up the empty stalls in the wet market.
If you are in Penang during this Chinese New Year season, you have to visit the Chowrasta Market and the surroundings to experience the happenings festive shoppings. It’s the most crowded time of all years and you will be amazed by the items sold and cheering atmosphere.
Chowrasta Market can be easily reached by Penang Central Area Transit (CAT) free bus.
