    I am looking forward to my upcoming Southeast Asia trip and this post made me even more excited about it. I wasn’t initially planning to but I will definitely make a stop at Penag too.

    I would love to visit Penang! One of the main reasons is the incredible melting pot that has created its unique cuisine, I would love to try that! The genuine openeness to multiculturism is all too rare in this world. I love the weathered and historical old town buildings, what glorious architecture to enjoy while seeking out the famous street art.

    Ah Penang! I was born in KL and we used to go to Penang for holidays. I haven’t been back for over 20 years but have heard it has changed so much and yet it has remained the same. The food in Penang is one of a kind, even for those born anywhere else in Malaysia. I remember just constantly eating all day, no matter if we were hungry or not! I have yet to see all the street art there. Very Banksy like aren’t they!

    I love exploring Georgetown’s streets and hunting for their street art. I enjoyed their food, being that it’s cheap but delicious and as you said, they are everywhere. I haven’t heard about the Thaipusam festival, though. It would be a great reason to come back to Penang and witness this interesting event.

    Penang is surely such a beautiful place, all credit goes to UNESCO-listed Georgetown. It is a completely instagrammable location. I can keep clicking pictures there forever. I mean it is actually so much of fun. Plus, Penang also has the beaches. That makes it a great place to visit in Malaysia when you are here.

    I’m so gutted I didn’t visit Penang when I was last in Malaysia, it looks awesome. My mouth’s watering from the sight of all that delicious food, it looks spicy however, but I’ll give it a try! And those street paintings are so iconic, will have to return one day soon.

    Penang is such a melting pot of cultures. I loved it when I visited it last year. So much to see just by walking around Georgetown. And yes, I loved Penang hill too…the mini rainforest right up there.

    Visiting Penang a tropical island must be fun which has nature, beautiful architectures, colorful streets and delicious authentic cuisines. I would love to take funny pictures with 3D paintings on the walls of George town. I never knew about tamilian festival in Jan/Feb but it is really interesting to know about Lord Murugan’s story of killing a demon. Thanks for sharing all details

    You’ve got me drooling thinking about all the delicious food I had in George Town. I thought I was very well going to kill myself eating at the night market because I wanted to go to every single stall and try something there. I also had one of the best noodle soups I’ve ever had on one of the piers in George Town – I think it was called Big Bowl Noodle or something like that. I’d love to go back and check out more areas of Penang outside of George Town, like the parks and beaches.

      The food is indeed amazing! Penang is the ultimate gourmand paradise 🙂 I think I know which noodle soup you’re talking about and if it’s the same- it was exquisite

    Penang seems to be a very charming city. I love how the people in Malaysia use the word can, showing that things are possible. It also looks like a street food haven. I would be trying out the delicacies on my visit to Penang. The architectures and the George town is really interesting. Definitely looking forward to a trip to Penang.
