Shopping for Antiques in Penang



Agoda booking


There are quite a number of antique shops in Penang. A good place to start is Penang Road, which has some of the best shop for antiques in Penang. There are a number of antique shops along both sides of the road. In addition, you might want to check out Chulia Street. There are some antique outlets at the malls such as Gurney Plaza, where you can expect prices to be higher.

Before takign out your wallet, find out whether the item you are considering buying is genuine or a reproduction - and whether an export permit is required for you to take them out of the country.

A number of items sold as antiques in these shops are in fact aged handicraft items from neighbouring countries like Thailand and Myanmar. They include potteryware, lacquerware, celadon, porcelain and basketware.

You can also find lovely Nyonya porcelain in many of these antique shops. These items, although popular locally, were in fact made in China according to local requirements. They are similar to the Thai bencharong, which however has become a cottage industy in Thailand. Over here, the making of Nyonya porcelain locally has not yet fully caught on.
