Inspired by Singaporean malls
1st Avenue is located right next to Prangin Mall and the [email protected] Mall at Komtar. The three malls are connected by sky bridges, so visitors can explore them without having to cross the busy streets of Georgetown. The mall was designed after some of the most popular shopping malls in Singapore; Raffles City, Marina Square and Suntech City; though the final layout also reminded us of Orchard Central along Orchard Road. The exterior has LED color changing facade lighting; which looks very nice in the evenings.
1st Avenue is opened daily from 10am to 10pm. The mall is easy to reach from tourist hotspots Batu Ferringhi and Tanjung Bungah; you can take the bus or taxi. The Komtar Bus Terminal is nearby 1st Avenue; below the Komtar building.
