Known simply as “Queens” to most of its patrons, this modern shopping center is the largest mall in northern Malaysia. It is the heart of a stunning waterfront development program in Bayan Lepus, covering a total land area of 73 acres. It is only a few minutes away from Penang Bridge. This huge shopping mall has more than 500 retail stores distributed into five floors or exciting shopping experience. The design guarantees a low-rise walkthrough layout that allows shoppers to see and identify a store 500 meters away. For Queens, a customer’s satisfaction and convenience is prime. Even children and teenagers were given a special place. The third floor features a number of fun entertainment and leisure attractions, which include a roller skating rink.
Queensbay’s flagship tenant is JUSCO, plus 17 junior anchor tenants. JUSCO is composed of a supermarket, ladies wear, men’s and kids’ wear, and household appliances. Aside from JUSCO, this ultra-shopping center has everything that shoppers look for. Its leading retail stores are, for fashion and apparel are Adidas Heritage, Billabong, Bossini, Body Glove, British India, Converse, Forever 21, Gap, Giordano, Guess, Hush Puppies, Sketchers, Soda, Levi’s, and MNG, among tons of many other exciting outlets; for toys and hobbies, Toys ‘R’ Us, Gameworld, and Robot Master, to name a few; for computers and IT gadgets, Digital Link, Nokia Priority, Sony Centre, U-Mobile, Motorola, Olympus, and Gadget Zone among others; household items, Daiso Japan, SenQ, Panasonic and so on; and for jewelry, Lorenzo Jewellery, Vinstella Jewellery and 88 Diamond Jewellery, to name a few.

Queensbay Mall is located in Bayan Lepas. With a facility this huge, it’s impossible to miss it. It is surrounded by restaurants, hotels and other modern facilities. To get to Queens from Georgetown, Penang’s capital, simply go straight following the “Bayan Lepas” signs. After passing two flyovers, take the left side of the highway and look for Villa Emas. Turn left before the next flyover and from there you will see Queensbay. At the roundabout, take a 3-o’-clock turn straight to a traffic light to turn right to the car park. When coming from Penang Bridge, again look for the “Bayan Lepas” sign on the left-hand side of the road. After passing two flyovers, follow the same instructions as when coming from Georgetown.
