What used to be a vacant, dilapidated building that served as the city’s bus depot after the Second World War, is today a vibrant creative hub that draws massive crowds to its weekend markets. The venue is also an exhibition and event space with a lively host of arts and culture programmes.
No trip to Penang is complete without a visit here, and no two visits are the same, for the programming is as fluid as the art it cultivates. Don’t forget to check their events calendar online to see what’s happening so that you can align your visit to the hub.
Note that parking is limited during the weekend, so head there early to chup (reserve) a spot, or hail a Grab over to the market teeming with vendors and shoppers.
