Streets of George Town, Malaysia
Some of my favourite photos taken in the streets of George Town, Penang, Malaysia, showcasing people busy in their daily lives.

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.
