Title: Chinese New Year in Penang
Post by: Crop Sprang on January 30, 2012, 05:48:40 pm
Got away from Kuala Lumpur chaos for the first time in over a month.
Flew up to Penang for a couple of days.
Georgetown is a world heritage site.
A famous trading port colonised by the British many years ago.
Best food in malaysia: combo of chinese, malay and indian cultures.
Narrow streets, shophouses, trade happening everywhere.

Rented some scoots and took a trip around the island
60 ront for the bike for the day, 9 ront on fuel, well worth it
Good to feel the wind in our faces again

Beaches, spice farms, butterfly parks, twisties, architecture, friendly people

A great couple of days all in all.

Off to Singapore next.
