By Aida Aziz

IPOH: The Ramadan Bazaar at Sultan Azlan Shah Roundabout (BSAS) in Meru Raya here made history by becoming the longest bazaar in Perak.

According to the Deputy Chief Executive Officer (Corporate Affairs) of Perak State Development Corporation (PKNPk), Nurdita Fadzlinda, the organization of the bazaar stemmed from last year’s success.

She said the bazaar, which spans 500 meters, offers a variety of unique dishes to the public.

“The popularity of BSAS has boosted its reputation as a popular destination, especially on Sundays.

“In conjunction with Ramadan, PKNPk has provided business opportunities to 100 traders offering various types of snacks, dishes, and drinks as choices for breaking the fast.

“The bazaar operates from 3 pm to 11 pm every day from March 12 to April 9,” she said on Thursday.

She further mentioned that the attractive menu items include royal popiah from Kuala Kangsar, watermelon juice, Las Vegas chicken rice with bean sprouts, and many more.

“BSAS is a preferred location for the trend of casual breaking fast among the public every year.

“Moreover, the trend of casual breaking fast became popular last year. It is our hope to organize a visitor-friendly and the largest Ramadan bazaar in Perak one day, and ensure BSAS is more comfortable for visitors,” she added.

Last year, PKNPk appointed an event management company to handle the Ramadan bazaar and successfully attracted 50,000 visitors.

Building on last year’s success, it was fully organized by PKNPk this year through the Asset and Administration Division.

In addition, she said, 20 additional trash bins were placed in visitor hotspots, especially in the parking area in the middle of the roundabout.

“The arrangement of the bazaar this year is also more comfortable for visitors, especially the wider pedestrian walkways.

“Adequate toilet facilities and comfortable prayer rooms are also available.

“The prayer rooms for men and women, equipped with ablution facilities, can accommodate around 30 people at a time,” she said.
