    Laksa stall: Eating Laksa

    by l_joo Updated Apr 22, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Normally after we eat Rojak, we will continue to eat Laksa. Laksa is not as welcome as Rojak because of its weird smells but I love Laksa so much. I love Malay Laksa as well where they have egg and eat with fork and spoon. But the moment we mention about Laksa, we usually mean the Tanglang's Laksa with hot soup and strong smells. Visitors should try this food but be prepared to accept the weird smells.

    Dress Code: Dress code is completely useless in today's world. What dress code do we need to eat Laksa? I think this is for those who want to pay a visit to the Emperor to perform kow-tow, otherwise who need a dress code.

    On the road: After meal, take a walk

    by l_joo Updated Apr 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After eaten so much of delicious Penang foods, stand up to take a walk to stimulate the flow of bloods also to let your stomach work smoothly, otherwise will cause indigestion and getting overweight. Make sure you do this or else you can't eat more Penang foods. If you are at Gurney Drive, take a walk on the beach front with nicely built sidewalk for pedestrians.

    After eating and walking. Visitors might want to buy something as souvenir or just simply shopping for fun. If you have a car, you can drive to Batu Ferringhi's night bazaar or else you can shop at the Gurney plaza which is just a few steps from where you eat Rojak and Laksa.

    Gurney at night: Gurney at night eating Rojak

    by l_joo Updated Apr 22, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the section I don't want to show Adult Spots or Nightclubs but only eating tips at night in Penang Island. I seldom spend my nightlife in nightclubs because I have no strong feel at those places. I prefer to spend time looking for photogenic spots to capture some exciting moments to tell the world. For this one in the photo, it is Penang Rojak. Very delicious but also you must eat at the famous stall, not all Rojak stalls are as delicious. Look for this stall at night in Gurney drive. Visitors can enjoy Rojak from 8pm until 12pm daily.

    Roast squid of Gurney: Roast squid

    by l_joo Updated Apr 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Roast squid is Poo-Gyou-Hoo in Penangite accent. Poo-Gyou-Hoo is not for filling up your stomach but as side dish to taste the flavour. Poo-Gyou-Hoo is so heaty if you forget to drink bottles of water, the next day your throat will get sored and became voiceless. Make sure you drink enough water after you tasted Poo-Gyou-Hoo which is so delicious.

    Sugar cane: Sugar cane juices

    by l_joo Updated Apr 23, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you have completed Rojak Laksa and Roasted squid, you need juicy cold drinks. Sugar cane Kum-Cheyah-Chooiey-Cheet-Aowl. You can go to the sugar cane stall and say Kum-Cheyah-Chooiey-Cheet-Aowl which means sugar cane juice one please. It cost you less than RM2 for a big glass and not to mention the taste was excellent, sweet and one more please.

    Night market (Pasar Malam): Chulia Street at night

    by l_joo Written Apr 23, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chulia Street at night is a must for visitors to see something less-seen. Chulia Street is more for backpackers and budget tourists, therefore the place is also in budget settings to fit the needs. If you want to look for 'that', this is the place and many small streets along this road also have 'that'. Please don't ask me what 'that' is, I'm talking only about 'that' not that.

    Gurney Place at Gurney Plaza: Hanging out at cafes

    by SLLiew Written Jan 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the day and night, this is a popular hangout for the young and the young at heart in Penang. Gurney Place is a row of cafes and eating places on the left side of the Gurney Plaza in Gurney Drive.

    Do not mistake it with "Gurney Hotel' which has a similar night spot of cafes and dancing place but located at the other end of Gurney Drive.

    So if you would to spend time with your friends or your notebook over latte and watch the world goes by, head to Gurney Place.

    Branded shops to night markets: Shop till you drop

    by SLLiew Written Jan 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After eating, I think the most popular night activity in Penang is shopping.

    Most shops open until 9pm or later until 11pm for some hypermarkets.

    There are night markets or small stalls along pathways to hypermarkets to branded shops in shopping malls

    And in Malaysia, there is sales all year round, Christmas, Chinese New Year, Raya, Deepavali, Merdeka (Independence Day) and country wide sales. So a lot of excuses to shop till you drop or just window shop and exercise your legs and enjoy the aircondition environment.

    Pub/night club: Gurney Hotel hangout

    by SLLiew Written Feb 15, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Do not confuse Gurney Hotel with "Gurney Place at Gurney Plaza) which is at the other end of Gurney Drive (Pesiaran Gurney).

    Gurney Hotel is located at the southern end of Gurney Drive near Pangkor Road and Northam Road.

    There is a "Chill Out" for clubbers, cafes and restaurants as well as walk-in spas. A popular weekend hangout for the young and the young at heart.

    Health Clubs

    by etokar Updated Sep 1, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Interested in getting something more then just a relaxing massage? Check out the "health clubs" in most of Malaysia's larger hotels. All offer traditional massage service performed at reasonable cost (@RM60) by an expert massuesse. But most offer "special packages" for only 100 ringit more if you know who and where to ask. If you're male and single, you won't be sorry.
    Another option for the more is to cross the border into Thailand (about 200 km away). There in the border town of Bukit Kayu Hitam or Hatyai (a little further inland), I'm sure you'll find what your looking for.

    Garage

    by yuet29 Written Feb 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Garage is originally an imitation of old penang. The design inside the building is unique, back to the old day.

    There are a few pubs around the area. Penang nightlife spots change very fast, it had been once very crowded, but now getting less attention.

    Central Georgetown: Soak up the atmosphere

    by jamie_uk Updated Mar 6, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walk around the old streets of central Georgetown and you are bound to come across loads of interesting things. Bars, clubs, street life, food stalls, dodgy characters, they are all here.

    We spent a good few hours walking around Penang Rd, Lebuh Chulia, Lebuh Leith, Lebuh Pitt etc. Love Lane can be a bit dodgy if you're on your own (lots of 'ladies of the night' as well).
    But not half as dodgy as London on a weekend !

    Dress Code: Its hot so no jacket and tie !
