  Varied pearls available
by suzyq40

Open air market, although very cramped. Has an array of different wares for sale, however there are thousands of pearls to buy.

What to buy: Pearls. They are everywhere. Different colours, different shapes and different sizes, and also varying prices, although I should mention, they are very very cheap.
I picked up 5 sets of pearl necklaces, all different lenths and shades for prices ranging from RM45 to RM120. Earrings are also cheap varying in price depending on whether they are set in gold or silver.

What to pay: for a choker RM45 ($18AUD) 3 strand fresh water approx 80cm long cost me RM130 ($52AUD). Earrings can cost from RM5 to RM10, so go nuts!!!
