Beautiful Sights Georgetown in Penang Malaysia

Posted by on Sep 11, 2010 in Featured, Malaysia, Travel, Wardrobe | 4 comments

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 Smile Anyway, here’s the best of my bus photos Open-mouthed smile

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 Sad smile

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.
