Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Little India - Penang

Discover the little known story of Little India's past, as we explore this vibrant and eclectic enclave. We'll enjoy local Malaysian-Indian snacks, dishes and drinks, and learn about the role Indian migrants played in building the city we love today.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Armenian Street

We'll unravel the tumultuous history of Penang in the 19th century - the drama of colonisation and migration, the political machinations of Clans and Tycoons & the struggle of ordinary people to make a home away from home. We'll try some local Malaysian-Chinese dishes and discover stories of Penang few people know exists.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Chulia Street

We'll complete our journey in this bustling street that is finding its new identity as a nightlife and street food hub. But its history goes deeper than that. We'll have dessert while discussing the evening's experience and reflect on our exploration.

Duration: 1 hour
