Little Penang Street Market

Little Penang Street Market is a cultural and art market held on Upper Penang Road every last Sunday of the month (subject to change if falls on public holiday).

I was here in both November and December market. It's definitely worth for a walk if you happened to be here on a Sunday. Lots of talented people and impressive art or product are all gathered here.

I guess I will just show you the pictures instead of mumbling whole page of story, enjoy!

I luv old stuff~

Handmade soap
Christmas Deco
They are made by beans

 There are signature food stalls too~

The center stage on the street inviting different people and organization to perform every month. There are choirs and dances, Christmas caroling during Christmas season and Wushu (martial art) Performance.

Not forgot to mention, Penang has successfully implement the Recycle Dustbin in whole Georgetown. I do hope our resident and tourist can utilize it properly, way to go for a green environment!

And I bump into my secondary school teacher's origami booth from Modern Origami Studio.

Little Penang Street is a great place to walk. Especially meaningful when getting a present for a special person because most of the art creation or handmade product are one-and-only-one in the world.

Drive all the way straight along Pengkalan Weld, passed by Victoria Clock Tower, Fort Cornwallis.
Follow the one way street and turn into Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, and then turn into the FIRST RIGHT turn. Go all the way straight until you reach a traffic light. Just a short distance after the traffic light you will see Little Penang Street on your right.
