Gurney Drive Hawker Centre is one of the most popular places in Penang for visitors, as should be the case. It is the place where of all the delicacies one should try from Penang can be found in one place.
Penang curry mee, assam laksa (noodles in a fish-based sour broth), ais kacang (a shaved ice dessert), cendol (a coconut milkbased shaved ice dessert), and rojak (a local salad); it is, thus, perfect, for your one-stop sampling of what Penang has to offer.
There are downsides however, the prices have grown along with its popularity and the traffic around the area can prove to be a hassle.
Since its inception as a World Heritage Site, George Town, Penang, has developed itself as a vibrant showcase for street art. This began with Marking George Town in 2009, which brought the telling of street and social history through the use of caricatures. The project, which showcases the works of cartoonists such as Tang Mun Kian and Baba Chuah, has helped generate awareness of the rich history of the streets.
