Opened in 2014 and 2018, and located in the heart of George Town’s world heritage site, the two Gerakbudaya Bookshops
are an essential part of the city’s cultural life. The name of the bookshop is well chosen. In the Malay language, gerak
denotes move while budaya means culture. We hope our presence helps stimulate fresh, radical ideas and new forms of
cultural engagement in Penang and beyond.
Gerakbudaya Bookshop is a place for people who love books to meet, talk and, of course, browse. Visit us any time.
