"Colonial Buildings" Top 5 Page for this destination Art & Architecture Tip by cheekychic

Art & Architecture, Penang: 42 reviews and 105 photos


A nimble amble through the historical sights in George Town: the first four streets mapped out by city fathers in George Town, namely Beach Street, Light Street, Pitt Street (now Jalan Mesjid Kapitan Keling) and Chulia Street are still very much relevant and bustle with traffic everyday.

Beach Street is now known as the financial hub in Penang, the old colonial buildings have been occupied mostly by financial institutions.

Directions: Located throughout the city.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
