Queen Street is full of lovely colourful shops and the Little India of Penang. Had a lot of fun checking out the shops with their gorgeous sari fabrics and after much bargaining, bought a few pieces of vibrant colourful sari fabrics at excellent prices.

This is part of Penang's "Little India" and is an interesting area to visit and walk around. You can find temples and many shops selling stuff like spices, clothing, DVDs, etc from India.

You can feel India climate here, stores selling india food, sari, jewelry and other India stuff. But not sure whether this is a attraction. India music can be heard but dirty place.
