EAST, WEST, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

peranakan mansions, overflowing in ornamentation. the chinese migrants of previous centuries surely knew how to decorate.

the thing is, mansions here incorporate structural and decorative elements from as far away as scotland.

british colonizers made sure top stamp their taste in architecture as well.

the thing is, their tastes already included indian influences by the time they got here.

in the end, the sum of the mixture is far better than its parts.

penang has architectural jewels waiting to surprise.

it also has some of the best hawker food centers in malaysia!
