All of the old George Town area is excellent value for a walk around. The architecture and the street art is absolutely amazing. I spent over two, half days in the area and probably only saw half of it! A camera is a must and with the weather and lighting the first few hours of daylight each day is perfect.

I spent hours everyday walking the streets of the old quarter in historic Georgetown. Queen St was one of my favourites . The colour , vibrant flowers, loud music and the Indian spices . I wish I could have taken them all home. The prices were cheaper here too.

This is essentially the Indian Quarter of Penang. Queen Street was named after Queen Charlotte who was the wife of George the Third of Great Britain. Along this street you will find street stalls as well as restaurants, all offering Indian fare. This was the favourite destination for our guide, who was Indian. He took us to his "cousin's" restaurant... More

The Star Pitt street is there. A good little history museum of The Star newspaper, plus a number of interesting cafes nearby. Queen Street backpacker hostel offers a women-only cheap accommodation. Parking is easy to find here and central to Georgetown attractions. Very close to Kuan Yin Temple.

Little India of Penang. Rows and rows of shops selling all things Indian such as food, tidbits, cookies, jewelries, clothes, spices, cookeries, etc. A number of Indian and Indian-muslim restaurants. Walking distance to Beach Street for Sunday morning street fair. Also short walking distance to Armenian Street where few street art can be found. All these places, even Chew Jetty... More
