Shops and marketplace
From flower garlands to gold bracelets and fresh water spinach
About two kilometres north of the Butterworth ferry terminal, around the main traffic artery of Jalan Bagan Luar, is a sprawling hub of street shops and terrace shophouses. Here one finds the highest concentration of shops in this old town.
The Kampung Benggali area got its name from a village where there were many Punjabis (‘Benggali’ was a loose, though inaccurate, local reference to Punjabis) which is no longer here. The street named Jalan Kampung Benggali today features a number of restaurants, cafes and hotels.
