Beautiful Sights Georgetown in Penang Malaysia
We arrived at Penang at around 7 am and we haven’t had any nice decent sleep. We were supposed to walk around Georgetown and take pictures. But we were really tired and sleepy so we just took these pictures while riding the bus hoping to walk around the city in the afternoon. But we slept whole afternoon lol so we never got to have another walk. I know I haven’t captured everything in photos but Georgetown is really lovely and very rich in culture. Georgetown Penang looks like our Vigan’s Calle Crisologo where old houses are preserved. The only difference is Georgetown’s architecture looks more English or British and our Calle Crisologo looks more Spanish. They also had cobbled roads like the one in Calle Grisologo Anyway, here’s the best of my bus photos
Kapitan Kling Mosque in Jalan Kapitan Kling
Tourists should be properly attired when entering the Mosque but I don’t know what is proper or not. I never went inside anyway
Another view of the Kapitan Kling Mosque
They also use the word “Kapitan” and I researched about the meaning. “Kapitan Keling” means headman.
What I find really nice about this Mosque is the ocher yellow façade around the posts.
This was just a random photo and according to Willaz:
“I know they sell medicine and bird’s nest and many more.. but i couldnt recall the name!”
“Berhenti” I think means stop lol
Loveyly street with tourists walking around I would really love to go back here and walk.
Thanks for Willaz who tried to help me identify some landmarks.
this is the clock tower roundabout near the Esplanade
This is the Clock Tower, Pesiaran King Edward
Tanjung City Marina, Pengkalan Weld
I think this is where cruise ships dock
There are lots of worship places here. Mosques, Chinese Temples and churches
This is just some ruins I found while walking from the bus stop to
Another colorful temple just near our hotel.
Komtar Tower. Tallest structure in Penang.
It’s just 2 blocks away from our hotel.
We also rode a free bus that supposedly will take you around
This is the Hop on, Hop off bus
Another Chinese Temple in Jalan Sungai Ujong.
I wanted to go inside and do pai pai and ask questions, but I won’t understand Dhinese
I loved walking around the streets of Penang. It’s a friendly neighborhood.
You need to take pictures of signs of streets and places once in a while
Penang bridge to mainland Malaysia via Butterworth
Till the next set of pictures.
This time it’s Penang food *yums*
