I really liked George Town, where I stayed for a few days while travelling from KL to Langkawi.
I expect at one time Singapore looked similar before they started pulling down the old houses.
A lot of the buildings are probably the same as they were 40 or 50 years ago, apart from the fact they have aged of course. Classic Chinese architecture with '5-foot ways' and shutters on the windows.
The population appear to be mainly Chinese but there are also Indian and Muslim areas.
India features highly in the ethnic mix of Malaysia. Around Georgetown are several Indian temples, restaurants and a large Indian population
- Pros:Lots of original buildings and still fairly unspoilt
- Cons:Limited stuff to do if you're there for more than a few days
- In a nutshell:An interesting place to stay for a few days
Not a tip, just a picture. I've covered the Indians and Chinese. Here is a Mosque for the Muslim community of Penang. more travel advice
My friend Raymond and his gang of young, nubile models. Some guys have all the luck. more travel advice
