Today, Gaya Street will be closed on every Sunday for the Gaya Street Sunday market, selling lots of local foods and handicrafts, read more on ‘Gaya Street A – Z’. Until today, you can actually still see old shophouses built during the 1950s and there were few very old antique ‘Kedai Kopi’ that still exist in Gaya Street since the 1950s.
