Penang Ramadan Bazaar

Penang Ramadan BazaarDuring the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, temporary bazaars sprout out seemingly overnight all over Penang. One can find sumptuous array of local delicacies, kuih-muih, refreshing drinks and dessert, festive cookies, clothing and religious items on sale at the month-long evening Ramadan Bazaar. A pleasant mood permeates the bazaar as the folks go about their jolly business of shopping for their evening meal to break fast and also keeping an eye on bargains in preparation to greet the Hari Raya Aidilfitri at the end of the month.

Penang Ramadan BazaarBe prepared for the large crowds in a rather confined area while you shop. Whether you are a Muslim or not, take the opportunity to visit the Ramadan bazaar across the city as some of the food is hard to come by on other days. The bazaars are most crowded from 5pm to 7pm before the sunset. At sunset, Muslims will break their fast to tuck in the iftar meal.  If you are not a Muslim, it would be a nice gesture to wait for sunset to have your meal together with the Muslims.
