The Prangin Mall is the most popular shopping complex in Penang. It's
located right smack in the centre of George Town.
The mall is never short of visitors,
thanks to its strategic location. It's attached to the Komtar,
which is older shopping complex and very quiet, because some shops are
closing down or relocating their stores. The Prangin Mall has some resemblance with the Sungei Wang Plaza in
Kuala Lumpur, which also very popular by tourists and local people.
You can reach the
Prangin Mall by crossing a very heavy road. Please pay attention
when you cross the street. You can also enter the shopping
complex from the old Parson Grand by crossing a sky bridge.
The Prangin mall offers me a cutting-edge
consumer experience complete with the obligatory Starbucks,
McDonald's restaurant and Parkson Grand. It's a sparkling outpost
of ultramodern Penang.
Features five-floors of shopping, dining and entertainment. The
Megapavilion Cineplex is located on the 5th floor. The latest
addition is a section on Level 4 called e@prangin which is
specially reserved for shops selling computers and related
items. HP, Epson and Canon have outlets here. A Macintosh kiosk
is located on the foyer.
There's also a very good bookstore: Popular, where you can buy
You can find all the latest gadgets and gizmos. At Prangin Mall
you can find something to suit everyone. The Mall is however not
well organised which can make for tiring shopping.
Many shops are selling dvd's selling for
RM6. For this price they are 'single layer' (not the best
quality). One shop on 4th floor has for RM12, 10 if you buy a
few, and these are 'double layer', much better quality. If the
movie has just come out, or in some cases, not hit the big
screen, then there is of course a very good chance that they
were filmed in a cinema, hence the heads.
