Travel Tips for George Town
Deepavali - preparing for the riot
The Hindus and other locals didn't look like a particularly troublesome lot. I was therefore surprised to see so many police in full riot gear brandishing baseball bat style batons.
It is probably standard security when the King and high ranking politicians are around.
Supreme Court Building
The buildings that now house the Penang High Court is built in the neo-classical style. It was purposesly built to house the courts during colonial days during the turn of the last century I believe. Penang is the first place to organise a legal system (in 1798 I think), the birth of the legal profession in Malaysia and Singapore (being part of the Crown Colony of the Starits Settlements).
George Town - Dato' Kramat Road
Jalan Dato' Kramat starts from Penang and joins up to Jalan Air Itam. Hence it is a busy two way street and plied by the red bus Transit Link.
At the Penang Road end, there is a popular GAMA supermarket for price and availablity of local shopping. Then an Hindu temple and a new housing project called "Times Square" which was formerly the site of Penang Tin Smelting when Malaysia was the world largest exporter of tin ingot.
Dato' Kramat then passes by the "Padang" which is field for soccer and night market "pasar malam" at the junction with Perak Road. This junction gives the local Chinese name of Dato Kramat Road which "Si Kam Tiam" (literally 4 shops).
Then continues pass the City Stadium, Penang Jail with the Penang General Hospital a block behind. Then it passes by several secondary schools including the former Han Jiang School and the Methodist Boys School .
The former canteen of Methodist Boys School was the historic "Suffolk House" the former residence of Colonial Governors which is under heritage restoration. TV advertisements are asking for public donations towards this restoration. Check Penang Heritage Trust fund website if you are interested.
