I have visited George Town in Penang on a number of occasions so here is a collection of images from there showing some of the beautiful heritage style architecture and interesting places to visit.
George Town is the colorful, multicultural capital of the Malaysian island of Penang. Once an important Straits of Malacca trading hub, the city is known for its British colonial buildings, Chinese shophouses and mosques. Beyond the old town, George Town is a modern city with skyscrapers and shopping malls. Verdant Penang Hill, with hiking and a funicular railway, overlooks it all.
There are some wonderful old shophouses and numerous temples dotted around central George Town. One of the easiest ways to get around is to take a trishaw.
It’s always fun to visit some of the shops and George Town has many old antique shops where you can perhaps find something interesting to take home.
I really like the old heritage shophouses which always make for a good photograph.
The old architecture seen around the back lanes of George Town are fascinating with their faded
You can spot some art-deco style old buildings around the town like this old garage right in the centre of town next to the iconic E&O Hotel.
There are quite a few abandoned and crumbling old villas which show what a grand place George Town must have been back in its hey day.
