Kampung Melayu Night Market
As a visitor in Asia a visit to a night market is one of those things you must do, otherwise you have never truly been in Asia. It is an institution and in denser populated areas there is one going on every day of the week. Where we resided, Taman Sri Lambak, an average sized residential community, there is one every two weeks. In the larger town of Kluang, about 10 kilometres away, there is one every day of the week. Although it is not on the same location, as it moves around to different parts of the town and surrounding neighbourhoods, which is good if you are learning the layout of a town you’re not so familiar with.

The pictures below are taken at the Kampung Melayu night market, which was one of our favourites, and also the last night market of this kind we went to before going back to Sweden. The absolutely worst part in getting to know these markets is that when you don’t have access to them you will miss all the yummy snacks they offer, such as apam balik, coconut milkshake, putu bambu, jagung kukus, putu piring, murtabak, satay and all the other delicious foods, beverages and snacks.
And almost as a gift to bid us farewell Kluang offered us a spectacular last minute lightning storm, which you can see in the last picture.
