Chowrasta Market is a bustling and vibrant traditional market located in the heart of George Town, Penang Island, Malaysia. The market has a long history, dating back to the early 20th century, and is a popular destination for both locals and tourists alike.

The market offers a wide range of goods and products, including fresh produce, meat, seafood, spices, and handicrafts. Visitors can expect to find a colorful and diverse selection of items, all sold by friendly and welcoming vendors who are eager to share their knowledge of local culture and customs.

Chowrasta Market is also known for its hawker stalls, which offer a variety of local and international cuisine, including Penang's famous street food. Visitors can sample dishes such as Char Kway Teow, Hokkien Mee, and Curry Mee, all freshly prepared and bursting with flavor.

The market is located in a historic building, which adds to its charm and character. It is conveniently located in the heart of George Town, within walking distance of many other popular tourist attractions, such as the Khoo Kongsi temple and the Penang State Museum.

Traditional market may also keep up with the trend, like market goers have started to use cashless eWallet to make payments in their daily purchases. And cashless smart parking is added as another technology adoption for Chowrasta Market. Driving-visitors are now accessing its parking site by using either TnG card or credit/debit card at the entry and exit lanes with the unattended parking kiosk integrated with barrier gates.

TimeTec was awarded the project due to its state-of-the-art parking technology at the front end and cloud backend. The supplied and installed system covers the casual parking for car lanes and extends to motor lanes. For season parkers, LPR was deployed for delivering its seamless touchless parking experience.

With its lively atmosphere, diverse selection of goods and food, and historic location, Chowrasta Market is a must-visit destination for anyone exploring Penang Island. It offers a unique glimpse into the local culture and customs, and provides a memorable and enjoyable experience for all who visit.
