This is one of my absolutely favourite shopping destinations on the island. This sea-facing mall by the famous Gurney Drive, is Penang’s new premier shopping and entertainment hub.
Its most attractive feature is really the building itself, which is built around the former St. Joseph’s Novitiate, known these days as simply, St. Jo’s. Charismatic restaurants and cafes that have become household names in Penang, sit within an architecture rooted in colonial heritage.
A vibrant retail mix of foreign and local labels in apparel, accessories, sporting items, jewellery, furnishings, electronic goods and more can be found in its eight floors. Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Tumi and Pedro are just a few of the many exciting outlets here; and if you’re not exactly in the mood for shopping, drop by anyway. Wind down with a drink while enjoying the classy ambience, island breeze and a grand view of the beach esplanade.
