Night Market [Bazaar Malam]

Calling myself to share about the night market. It should be a new information for those who just arrived to Malaysia, perhaps.

The night markets are typically from 6 o'clock pm till 10.00 - 10.30 pm. You can get anything from night markets - groceries, clothing, good local food, hot snacks, accessories, bags, CDs, tapes, Videos, household items, fresh produce, the latest fads, etc. All at low prices and you can still bargain for lower prices!
There are morning markets also, but they are are more suitable for getting groceries and fish, meat, fruit and vegetables. We call those markets with fresh seafood "wet markets". These morning markets are from 6 - 9 am in every part of the city.

Night markets or night bazaars are street markets operating at night that are generally dedicated to more leisurely strolling, shopping, and eating than more businesslike day markets.The most well-known night markets are those in Taiwan, but they also exist other areas inhabited by ethnic Chinese such as Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Thailand, and Chinatowns worldwide.

Night markets are commonly known as Pasar Malam by the locals, which literally means night market, "pasar" being related to "bazaar" in Persian. A pasar malam is a street market in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia that opens in the evening, usually in residential neighbourhoods.[1]

It brings together a collection of stalls that usually sell goods such as fruit, vegetables, snacks, toys, clothes, movie discs and ornaments at cheap or at least reasonable prices. A pasar malam often takes place only one to a few days of the week, as the traders rotate around different neighbourhoods on different days of the week. Haggling over prices is a common practice at such markets.
