“Market type shopping for almost everything with a better bargain”
Review of Pasar Bawah

Pasar Bawah
Ranked #3 of 20 Shopping in Pekanbaru
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 August 2015 via mobile

Like any other city, this is Pekanbaru's Tanah Abang or you could see bargain market with plenty of options around and lots of choices and bargains to make. As compared to the posh show rooms of Jalan Sudirman for sure you would get better prices and perhaps better varieties too for all commonly available items. Carpets are a favourite shopping idea here, kitchen ware, table ware, show case items, vintage items, etc etc. of course you miss the posh look and salubrious environment as compared to a posh show room in the malls but pockets save a lot of money. For a simple comparison, I had a bargain purchase of almost five different variety carpets for 3.3 million rupiah, which would have cost me a cool 5 million IDR elsewhere in malls or showrooms......but beware of quality imitations, lesser known names, etc. Crowded place and beware of your belongings and goods in cars.

easy to find, quite clean, but if you come here by car, you need to push your luck to find empty space to park your car. if you succeed parking your car, the rest is piece of cake.
you can find many things here, starting from snacks, souvenirs, clothes, travel bags, glass and crystal wares, carpets, etc.
but this place is famous for it's snacks. you can find various snacks from malaysia or traditional (signature) food of pekanbaru with affordable price.

note: no air conditioner and watch out for pickpockets
