Penang Local Customs: 91 reviews and 117 photos


Traditionally, if you visit Penang island, you should buy some biscuits for your friends and relatives, this is a local custom I want to tip everybody. Now if you have friends or relatives staying far away from Penang, you can buy some Penangite's biscuits as courtesy or polite behaviors to give to them, this is a local custom passing down from elders. Same goes for your friends and relatives, they would buy some local made biscuits for you when they visit you.
