    Dont feed the monkeys & other animals

    by globetrott Written Jul 30, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dont feed the monkeys in the Botanical Garden, it is an offence that will be prosecuted and it is also quite dangerous, as the monkeys might scratch you and when an open wound of your body gets in contact with blood or spittle of the monkeys, you never know what comes out of this.
    It is a pity that lots of people dont care a lot about this !

    Dont touch the "holy snakes"

    by globetrott Updated Jul 24, 2014

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The whole scenery looks quite strange with snakes all over the rooms, the trees, the floors etc. and you might get the feeling you can just touch them, because they dont move at all and mostly they also look like they were dead anyway.
    This is a good place to get close to the snakes as long as you keep some distance and as long as you move very slowly yourself.

    Coming to Malaysia from Singapore especially it can be a bit of a shock to suddenly be confronted with a lot of poverty on the streets.

    A warning for the girls ...

    There are lots of handsome, eligible men in George Town. Watch that you don't get carried away and lose your heart to one of them.

    Open Drains

    by phil_uk_net Updated Nov 12, 2003

    As in many parts of SE Asia, open drains are used in Penang. It's obvious to say so, but don't fall down one. As you're walking along, watch where you are stepping.
