Penang is food paradise. - George Town

Penang is food paradise.

Probaply the best place in Asia for food.

Favorite thing: Penang is a foodlovers paradise.
I am normally not really a food traveller, but in Penang i just love the food scene.
Because of the ethnic variety on the island with many malay, indian and chinese, plus other minorities, you have really good choices of different kitchens and the prices are incredibly low when you consider how good the quality is.
You can stuff yourself with amazing food for less than 5 dollars and a light luch should only cost you a couple of dollars and we are not talking crappy deep fried fastfood drom burger chains here, but really tasty and healthy food cooked right in front of you.

The tourist information in George Town. - George Town

The tourist information in George Town.

Good tourist information.

Favorite thing: George town has a very decent little tourist information down by the harbour next to the old clock tower.
When i was there i was mostly there to pick up one of the free maps of town, but i noticed that they had brochures for tourists with special interests like food, art, etc and these brochures were of a pretty nice quality, so i suggest that you make your way past there if you have any of these interests.
They also gave me a calender of cultural events happening in Penang during my stay and the girl at the counter was very helpful in general.
