“a good cycling street”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

A good street for cycling. The part that could be improved is the stopover points as some attractions are where cars and people fighting for space and often made enjoying these attraction difficult if you are doing the viewing town trail style.

“History”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This entire area is abundant in historical and cultural treats and Cannon street is no different. Yeap Kongsi (Yeap Clan) sits at the intersection with Armenian Street and it's intricacies and decor is similar to the Khoo Kongsi. Bring along your camera.

“Great views”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Easy bus ride out and then up the funicular railway to this historical area favoured by the early colonialists as a refuge from the heat. Wonderful views over Penang and Straits. I would have walked up if I had more time, looks a great if slightly demanding walk.
