Malaysia's Largest Pasar Malam In Ipoh Will Have 1,000 Stalls (And Free WiFi)
Time to plan for a road trip! :)
Ipoh Walk Night Bazaar is the latest attraction in Perak's capital city
Strategically located at Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah nearby the AEON Kinta City Mall and next to TM point, this pasar malam is dubbed as Malaysia's largest one yet.
It is said that it will only take a two-minute drive from the North and South Avenue and a 10-minute drive from Ipoh city centre to reach Ipoh Walk.
The pasar malam has been opened to public for weeks now since its launch in September, but the official opening date is not until 8 December.
This night market in Ipoh is home to over hundreds of stalls and the numbers are set to increase to 1,000 when it's fully operational
Ipoh Walk Bazaar Marketing Executive, JC Chia, told Sinar Harian back in September that the bazaar is situated on a 4.8-hectares land.
The first phase of Ipoh Walk will see the pasar malam house about 300 stalls selling food and beverages while the remaining 450 stalls will offer other things such as clothing and household items, and even providing other services.
According to Ipoh Walk's official website, visitors will be able to use many facilities including free parking and WiFi, and have access to toilets and surau, among others.
Based on social media posts by visitors who have paid a visit to Ipoh Walk recently, it seems that there are indeed different kinds of street food offered here
It was reported that Ipoh Walk will feature many food vendors that sell yummy and popular street food from other countries such as Thailand, Taiwan, and Indonesia.
These vendors - hawkers of all races and ethnicity offering non-halal and halal food for the convenience of visitors - have been carefully screened by the Ipoh Walk management to ensure that visitors will have a taste of a variety of foods offered in different parts of the world.
Basically, visitors are spoilt for choice here when it comes to food and drinks
Besides enjoying all the good food and shopping, visitors can expect more exciting activities and events in the near future.
Just last month, the 'Pesta Orkid & Floral' was held at Ipoh Walk.
