Travel Tips for George Town
Watch the antics of Japanese tourists
I have a strange fascination with Japanese tourists. I love the way they arrive en masse in a tour bus, giggling and chatting, take their photos and then zoom off to the next place on their itinerary. Over the years their antics have given me a great deal of pleasure. I would dearly love to spend some time in Japan. Thank you people of Japan.
The Old Protestant Cemetery.
This was the cemetery which was used from 1789 till 1892. Captain Francis Light - the founder of the settlement which is now Georgetown - was buried here. His tomb, as well as all the others, is in a very poor condition despite a plaque inside the cemetery claims the cemetery to have been restored by the Penang Heritage Trust in 1994.
George Town - Air Itam Road
Jalan Air Itam is one of the most important road in Penang, connecting Air Itam to the rest of George Town.
It passes the river, Sungair Air Itam at the State Mosque. It will pass by the Hindu Templees built near rock outcrops then meet a roundabout to continue to Air Itam or go to Penang Hill Station. There is a World War II memorial near the roundabout.
When approaching Air Itam, you will have a panaromic view of the famous Kek Lok Si Temple.
The red bus line "Transit Link" plyies between Komtar and Air Itam town along Jalan Air Itam.
George Town (what is that?)
As a Penang born, I almost forgotten this place was named by somebody as George Town, it's like non-exist in the list, although I could recognize the name but seldom I heard it being mentioned or in daily use. I definitely don't called myself a George Townian, I believe others too. Penang-born somehow care not to build the George Town page on VT, so, anyway, this is a George Town page by a native Penang, welcome.
