Wandering around Little India was one of my typical things to do in George Town. As you step into Little India, you will feel welcomed by the exciting Indian music, different Indian spices, and beautiful flowers. You will also see Indian women who are wearing traditional colorful dresses, an Indian man reading a newspaper while waiting for his Rotti Canai on his chair at the food stall on the street……

Little India in Penang (George Town) has a special vibe that is very hard to explain. The only way to find out is to go to Little India, and feel it by using all your senses!

7. Treat yourself with nice local food

Are you thinking about what to eat for lunch while you’re having breakfast? Do you feel like eating again when you see delicious food right in front of you even though you just finished your meal or dessert? Very good!

Penang Asam Laksa: A must-try soup who visits George Town (Penang)! It’s a good mixture of saltiness, sweetness, and spiciness! I like it even though I’m not a huge fan of seafood.

Welcome to heaven! Try famous local dishes like Char Kway Teow, Penang Asam Laksa, different mee (=noodles), and desserts like Chendol and Ice Kacang! They are waiting for you to be eaten at food street stalls and night hawkers!  All you need is to follow your nose and eyes! Go for whatever looks good, whatever smells great! 😉

Oh, you are still not sure what to eat? No worries! I’ll tell you what to eat in George Town.

8. Chilling on the beach (Batu Ferringhi)

Are you exhausted by walking around George Town (Penang)? No worries! Take a AC bus and have a little beach time. But I warn you beaches in Penang aren’t the best… but it’s better than nothing… right? 😉

It’s really nice to chill on the beach talking with your friend if you want to get out of George Town’s busy streets and crowds.  Also, you can meet unexpected companies on the beach!

Kek Lok Si temple is not only the biggest temple in Malaysia but an important temple for pilgrims from other parts of Southeast Asia.

If you read my blog posts, you would know that I’m not the biggest fan of temples. But surprisingly I liked Kek Lok Si temple because it wasn’t just AFT (Another Fucking Temple), there was something special about Kek Lok Si .
