We love our home town of Penang and there is nothing we like better than to wander it's streets getting a little lost, discovering little gems, both old and new - the food, it's people and all the vibrant colours. We invite you to experience George Town as we do and be a part of this slightly strange, eclectic, incredibly interesting community with all its quirks, nooks and crannies.
