Morning Kick

Morning

To begin your trip in Penang from the early Morning, you should start with the Georgetown. Kick-start your day in Penang by exploring Georgetown heritage streets on your foot. This place is full of temples and heritage sites that are built and rooted in the cultural ecstasy of the place from the past times giving it an exhilarating charm and uber suave vibe. The major attractions of Georgetown which you must visit are the blue-hued Penang Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, Peranakan Museum, Kuan Yin Temple, Khoo Kongsi clan house and Kapitan Keling Mosque. At the end of it all, you can visit the Clan Jetties. It has six wooden jetties aligned in a series that were built 100 years ago. This place has an ancestral lineage and therefore, it would be better if you take the kind permission of the locals before continuing with photographs. To reach the historical landmarks over here, you will need to take a 15-minute walk by the Penang Clan Jetties.

Afternoon Fun

The afternoon time of the equatorial islands is usually rainy in nature and therefore, it is always upon your luck whether you get enough time for outings or weather plays a spoilsport. You can continue with your trip further ahead if the weather favours you and get out to witness some of the best colonial structures of the region such Fort Cornwallis, Queen Victoria Memorial Clock Tower etc. The Teochew Chendul is one of the most famous roads of Penang and you can find many worthwhile places to see over there such as Kafe Kek Seng’s ais Kacang, and Apom Balik at Apong Guan, Burma Road.

Pleasurable Evening

EveningThe day trip should be brought to a pleasant end at Gurney Drive which also has the popular shopping mall called Gurney Plaza and another widely well-known shopping arcade Paragon Mall. This plush shopping area which is meant for the shopaholics and if you would actually account for the numbers, there are more than 40 fashion boutiques and 30 restaurants in this small area alone making it quite a vibrant and buzzy place in the evening. A few shopping malls here are known to have the luxury brand stores such as Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton etc. The place is an absolute delight for the seafood lovers who can savour some great cuisines and marvellous delicacies. The dinner at the hawker cuisine could also be quite a budget-friendly and yet a tasty choice for those looking to cut down on their expenditures. Some of the popular dish served in the food court of the Gurney Drive includes stir-fried rice noodles, curry mee, noodles in a fish-based sour broth, and fruit vegetable salad dish.
