"The World Heritage Penang capital, Georgetown." George Town by Askla

George Town Travel Guide: 214 reviews and 588 photos

Imposing temples dominate the scenery.

Georgetown has a lot of interesting and beautiful temples, as well as mosques and some churches. Among the temples you will find the only Burmese Buddhist temple outside of Burma (or Myanmar as it is nowadays).

A World Heritage man.

Encounter this remarkable man, in my tips. At the age of 81 he was still making joss sticks by hand.
