Tourist information centre Tips (2)

Tourist information centre

Favorite thing Tourist information centre is located right in front of Clock Tower, we decided to go straight from airport and it was very clever idea. We gathered a lot of information, map and helpful leaflets to start up our city tour.

The Only Jewish History In Penang

Favorite thing I wish to share my little knowledge of Penang to all those who are interested. One can only find this little cemetery especially for the Jewish and the name of the street (Jahudi Road) is the Malay word for Jews but now had been changed to Jalan Zainal Abidin. Just inside the town at the junction of Burma Road. Although Malaysia has no diplomatic relation with Israel but only Penang has a Jew's cemetery.

Fondest memory Most of us who travel abroad for a long duration will sure missed some things from their home place. For me, the leisure pace and easy to roam around town are the two privileges that I missed most, more than the foods. Penang is a place where you can find leisure even for the travelers. Penangites are friendly and very casual in every way. Street foods is a bonus for travelers and locals a like, delicious, 4-5 types culture foods and cheap. Tips - just look at the number of plate or bowl at the stall, a popular stall always has plenty of these and customers.
