Thursday Travels is a weekly column featuring sights and sounds from my wanderlust adventures. Come, fly with me, and we’ll explore strange cultures, exotic eats and everything in-between.
Georgetown Penang is a charming little town, filled with street hawkers, busy markets and slow businesses. While it’s possible to explore Georgetown’s core zone by foot, a good slap of sunblock and comfortable walking shoes are highly recommended.
Last of the lot: The houses near Clove Hall are mostly refurbished and well-maintained. They remind me of our Katong shophouses. Towards the end of our trip, we took a stroll at sunset and were captivated by the sun-drenched buildings.
