”Reach Up & You Shall Be Rewarded” – One of the wall paintings by the artist that started this all;
Ernest Zacharevic on the opposite side of the street (Lebuh Acheh) where Khoo Kongsi temple is.
If there’s one state in Malaysia that I don’t mind spending my traveling days in (aside from my hometown Perak, of course), it has to be Penang.
The thing about planning an excursion to the island proudly named “Pearl of the Orient” is that the exploration possibilities are almost endless. If you’re a shutterbug with deep interest in taking photographs of heritage buildings, pre-war shophouses and street murals, then you will have a whale of a time around Georgetown.
Even if you’re looking forward to a beach retreat and a durian binge on the quieter, hilly terrains of the island, Penang’s the spot for you. And the #1 reason on why Motormouth kept returning year after year (this was my 3rd visit this year; twice for work) – the amazing Penang Hawker Food.
