Previous years before, Penang was a duty-free Island and Penang drew huge numbers of people hungry for shopping adventures. Although Langkawi has taken over the duty-free status once held by Penang, the Island has not lost its luster. We will help you mingle around and shopping freely.
From shopping malls to night markets and antique shops to cultural areas, Penang has the whole gamut of commodities for sale. During the annual nationwide shopping festivals in August, Penang becomes a massive hub of commercial excitement as locals and tourists flock to cash in on the shopping boom. Bargaining is the culture here. When it comes to shops and stalls, do your best to haggle for the best price. Best Car Rental Penang will bring you shopping at the most popular areas in Penang and you are free from the traffic hassle if you use our Chauffeur service.
There’s no price that can’t be lowered down with the proper know-how and bargaining. And if the price doesn’t suit you, always look around elsewhere! Best Car Rental Penang will bring you anywhere around the Island and Mainland for a great shopping experience.

Gurney Paragon Mall is Penang’s best centre for an eclectic mix of fashion trends. Set along Persiaran Gurney, the seafront complex is home to more than 40 fashion boutiques and 30 restaurants. However, what makes Paragon utterly unique is the fact that the entire 700,000sqft complex has been built around St. Joseph’s Novitiate, a 1925 chapel that has been beautifully restored and incorporated into the mall’s open-plan layout design.
The mixed development complex comprises the nine-storey mall, plus luxury residences and office towers.

Komtar Penang is a 65-storey high rise tower in central Georgetown that is one of the most prominent landmarks in Penang. Its lower floors are retail spaces occupied by local boutiques and lots of stalls specialising in cell phone, camera and laptop repairs, while upstairs are office lots.
Penang’s tallest structure is cylindrical in shape and the sixth-tallest building in Malaysia. It is home to the state govenrment’s office and can be found at the confluence of the Jalan Penang and Jalan Magazine. An indispensable part of Penang’s tourism scene, a great reason to visit is for its 58th floor viewing deck which offers views of the island and across the straits to Penang’s mainland.
Besides providing visitors with a great photo opportunity, inside the 12-sided Komtar Penang mall (which is spread across just four floors), shoppers can expect a real down-to-earth look with the ground level dominated by local budget department store, Pacific, money changers and rows of colourful booths specialising in computer, hand phone and camera services.
Short for Kompleks Tunku Abdul Rahman, the 761ft-high tower’s viewing gallery has a souvenir store and coin operated telescopes much like New York’s Empire State Building. The building itself is surrounded by several shuttered two-storey shop-houses and 18th-century kongsis (clan houses), which has led to many people calling the area Penang’s unofficial Chinatown.
