Scenes From Around Georgetown, Penang
Georgetown is on the island of Penang on Peninsular Malaysia and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city is rich with multicultural heritage with Malay, Chinese, Indian, and European influences. Walking the streets is a feast for the senses with the bright colors of the buildings and tiles, the smell of street food and incense burning, the sounds of Indian music blaring from speakers on the streets simultaneously competing with the bang of drums accompanying a Chinese dragon’s performance.
This mix of cultures comes together in Georgetown and at times you can forget that you are in Malaysia while you are momentarily transported to China, India, Europe . . .
And sadly, on my last night in Georgetown I am realizing that I did not get any photos of Little India. My memory will have to suffice.
