Travel Tips for George Town

Deepavali

by phil_uk_net

Deepavali is a big thing here. This year it was Penang's turn to host Malaysia's special Deepavali gig. A huge show was put on which was shown live on TV.
I watched for a while. First off we had an Indian guy with an outrageous Afro-perm straight from the 1970's. It was pure Channel 9 from The Fast Show (UK reference). Then we had a display of Malaysian Nationalism - songs and dance and all good stuff about what a wonderful country it is and how the different cultures all live in perfect harmony. Then some local diva banging out Gloria Gaynor numbers. I didn't stay around very long ...

Tropical Spice Garden.

by Askla

One of Penang's and Georgetown's most popu-
lar attractions is the Tropical Spice Garden, which is located in Teluk Bahang, few minutes' drive from Batu Feringgi.
You will find landscaped trails and natural pathways, waterfalls and stream crossings while walking around exploring and learning about all the spices you have used yourself or just heard about. There are all together more than 500 varieties of flora from Malaysia and the neigh-
bouring countries.
The garden is divided in several rooms and trails so it's easy to choose what you want to see. It might be a little too much, in fact, to try to make the whole garden during one visit.
There is also a Visitor Centre which include a Spice Museum, a Garden Shop, a Spice Café and a Gift Shop.

Opening hours 09.00 - 18.00 everyday (last admission 17.30).
Entrance fees: adult self-guided /guided tour 14/22 RM, children (4 - 12 years) 8/8 RM, and family ticket (2 adults and up to 3 children) 35/55 RM.

To get there you can take the public buses No. 93, 202 or U101.

George Town - King Street

by SLLiew

Lebuh King is a one way street parallel and between China Street and Bishop Street.

It connects Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling and Beach Street (Lebuh Pantai).

There are many prewar buildings with five foot walkways. It has been a site of several movie filming to capture the atmosphere of that era.

Nice to walk along this street and step into an early period of George Town.

George Town, Penang

by phil_uk_net

"George Town"

I really liked George Town, where I stayed for a few days while travelling from KL to Langkawi.
I expect at one time Singapore looked similar before they started pulling down the old houses.
A lot of the buildings are probably the same as they were 40 or 50 years ago, apart from the fact they have aged of course. Classic Chinese architecture with '5-foot ways' and shutters on the windows.
The population appear to be mainly Chinese but there are also Indian and Muslim areas.

"Indian population"

India features highly in the ethnic mix of Malaysia. Around Georgetown are several Indian temples, restaurants and a large Indian population
