The Prangin Mall is a large sized structure with five floors and a basement located at the curb on Jalan Dr Lim Chwee Leong. The first floor has a Mc Donald’s outlet along with a few other cafes, salons, spas and opticians. The reflexology spa is particularly well known by the tourists who come in search of foot treatment. The spas and eateries continue onto the second floor where you find delicacies made from soy beans and soy milk. For waffles, scones, desserts and gift shops visit the third floor and start your tour of the fashion world, slowly but steadily. The world of fashion truly begins, continues and does not seem to end on the fifth floor, where you will also find pet care clinics and fashion accessories.


Mobile phone and accessory shops can be found on almost each floor as the tech savvy youth are completely at home strolling into one of them or an Internet café or a gaming arcade, where they play video games and surf the net. The cinema is another crowd puller as it screens some of the latest arrivals to the movie world that are appealing to Easterners.


Each month of the year, there is a special program or event that takes place to give the patrons an extra thrill, in April there was a junior taekwondo program introduced along with a Chris Wong promotional tour. The month of March was dedicated to the beauties of the country; both male and female contestants went head to head to beat each other in the department of good looks. The would – be brides were ecstatic when a bridal show was put together within the premises entirely keeping their needs in mind.

This fun filled location that reinvents itself every month is blessed to have Tanjung Bungah hotel Penang located close to it. Every Penang hotel ensures that there is a smooth and secure flow of benefactors that visit the mall. It is not unusual for those at Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang to even do daily visits to the mall to pick up anything they fell in love with the day before, but was too thrifty to purchase.
