My weekend trip to Penang was good fun and the leisurely two days were just right to explore the Island.
The best part about the place, according to me was exploring George Town especially Armenian street which is in the heart of the UNESCO Heritage Zone.
The area houses some old structures and buildings interspersed with interesting wall art. The area is humming with activity with vendors selling souvenirs, cool knick-knacks, accessories, snacks and drinks. At several points you will notice bi-cycle and rickshaw rentals which are a great way to go about exploring and spotting wall art. Alternatively, you can ride in one of the many trishaws and go around shaded in the umbrella overhead. You can even get a Georgetown walking map for free which will tell you exactly where different pieces of art are located. We couldn’t spot a couple of them so my guess is that they got painted over or something.
The locale is just so charming and the several quaint cafes, dotted around make it even better. Take a pit stop in one of these and relax over some cold latte and cake.
