The festival of Eid al-Fitr, known locally as Hari Raya Aidilfitri, is upon us. With Ramadan closely approaching, Muslims across Malaysia will begin preparing for the most festive time of their calendar year. After spending two years of Hari Raya on a smaller scale, it’s understandable that as we continue to live with COVID-19, we return to celebrating how we used to.

Part of this includes shopping and attending all the festivities going on. So, to make up for lost (pandemic) times, here are some of the best bazaars worth checking out this Hari Raya season.

1. Bakers Galore, Kuala Lumpur

Foodies, rejoice! This Raya season, Bakers Galore will be happening at MyTown KL. Not to be missed, those who can’t get enough of baked goods can expect an array of cakes, breads, festive cookies, pastries, and more! While you’re there, remember to bring some home that you can serve during your open house.

Date: 25 March to 16 April 2023
Time: 10am to 10pm
Location: 1st Floor, MyTown KL, Jalan Cochrane, Seksyen 90, 55100 Kuala Lumpur
