where are the shoppers

Shopping arcade in the duty-free zone, Tumpat, Kelantan.
I don't recall seeing any shopping complex in Rantau Panjang. There are, however, many small arcade stalls. Many clothing stalls. This one is in the duty-free zone. Thailand is just across the river. That explains why many products from Thailand are found here.
