A wander around George Town

I went for a wander around George Town’s Heritage Zone one afternoon this week. In the past I would not have done this, because it is generally too hot, but it’s been cooler lately, and so it was a pleasant stroll.  Here are a few photos…

  1. Your post brought back many memories – from about 30 years ago. Yes, it’s that long since I’ve been in Penang. I’d forgotten how much red there is there. Not sure if I’ll manage another trip there as I just hate long-haul now. Luckily, I am finding much I want to see in Europe as more and more countries open up to tourism and flights get cheaper. But still, a trip toPenang is an attractive thought!

    1. Hi. In the last few years George Town has been spruced up quite a bit, and is mostly the nicer for it. But certainly there is a lot to see in Europe. I don’t find long haul bad if the plane is not crowded, but very often they are now.
