Pasar Payang lies in the centre of Kuala Terengganu and is located by the Terengganu River. It is one of the most popular tourist spots in Kuala Terengganu and a great place to hunt for souvenirs to bring back home.
Housed in a somewhat modern building, Pasar Payang is a great place to experience the culture as locals do their daily shopping here in Pasar Payang.
A variety of local produce in Pasar Payang being sold.

Turtle shaped souvenirs made from seashells spotted. Needless to say, they are too adorable and unique to resist and I ended up gaving them all a home.
Some stalls over here in Pasar Payang are tourist trap and they may sell some items more expensive than they should, so to be on the safe side, always bargain with the seller for the lowest price before you make a purchase.
