George Town
George Town
George Town is the capital of the island and state of Penang, off the west coast of peninsular Malaysia known for its mix of cultures and its delicious street hawker food. The city was established in 1786 by the British as one of the three Straits Settlements along with Malacca and Singapore. Today its ancient core of well-preserved buildings provides an authentic view at this vibrant city with traditions that run deep. A mix of settlers from China, India, and beyond have created a mix of ethnic groups that each stay true to their cultures and religions. But perhaps most beloved for its street food, tourists fly in to George Town from across Asia to taste the classic hawker dishes.

Things To Do in George Town

Lorong Love

M33***59This one is also a small and fresh check-in point for literature and art, but because it is during the day, it is impossible to see its true magic. I don’t know (discovered after the night that night). Now the Love Lane is synonymous with slow life. This long alley has a Nanyang tradition The architectural style has large and small cafes and bars to sit down and feel the people coming and going and the traffic is nothing more than a bad thing! !

Traveler_D324Traveling to Penang, how can I not stop to take photos with street art? It's fun when looking for pictures. Some photos are waiting for a long queue for taking pictures. But tourists are willing to wait.
