Shopping Tips

Business hours   Shops usually open from 10am and close at 7pm. Supermarkets and shopping malls open at 11am and close at 10pm. If you shop at roadside stalls or pasar malam (night market), be prepared to bargain (food prices however are fixed).

Payment   Mode of payment at most shops is cash - definitely in small towns, villages and small shops. However supermarkets and some large department stores do accept credit cards (most common is Visa, Mastercard and Amex). Credit cards are common in Singapore and major cities in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Penang) and at hotels. When travelling in Malaysia, be prepared to pay cash. Licensed money changers are usually located at shopping malls. To pay for what you get, bargain when you shop for non food items at open markets (e.g. pasar malam) and bazaars
