Another Shopping Option in Ipoh
Some weekends ago when I was back in Ipoh, I finally got the time to visit the flea market for the first time on Sunday morning. I was impressed by the crowd when I passed by the place last time. And on the day I went to this open-air street market, it was crowded as usual too.
Most of the sellers are selling old stuffs or second-hand stuffs from a great range of items. There are shoes, books, magazines, kitchenware, accessories, CDs and many more.
But what catch my eyes are those antiques available, which included cane basket, old-time radio (the really big size one), acoustic gramophone (cool!), kerosene lamp, copper cookware, phone, Hi-Fi, iron that works with charcoal etc. These make me excited.
Therefore, if you are really into antiques, it's really a great place to shop around. However, if you are just going for those second-hand stuffs, you should know that some of these are stolen stuffs.
Here is a real story; my mother's friend found his stolen shoes sold at one of the stalls!
It is one of the favorite shopping places for foreign workers (from Indonesia, Mymmar etc.) because there are cheap stuffs for sale here. Some of them are illegal migrants. So, you should be extra alert of pickpocket or robber even though there are police guarding at the end of the streets.
Where is it?
This open-air street market has occupied about 2 main roads, which are the Horley Road and Lim Bo Seng Road. Just near to the Ipoh City Hotel, Grand View Hotel and The Store shopping center.
