George Town, Penang was my last destination in Malaysia. I left Penang to reach Kuala Lumpur from where I was taking a flight to Vietnam.
During this month-long trip to Malaysia, I experienced warm hospitality, enjoyed delicious food, and took part in Ramadan and Hari Raya celebrations.
While in George Town, I spent my time walking around the streets, visiting a 232-year-old Protestant cemetery, different mosques, and admiring different street arts spread across the town. On my last night in George Town, I even got punched in the face by a stranger — making my time even more memorable in the country.
Now that my Malaysia trip has come to an end, I am publishing some of my favourite street photos from George Town as a “thank you” to the people of Penang who made my stay worthwhile. Also check out my previous article which was dedicated to the people of Kuala Lumpur.
