Port visit: Saturday, March 09, 2019.
My pictures (Three Sets), reflect a walk around the old part of George Town.
George Town is the colorful, multicultural capital of the Malaysian island of Penang. Once an important Straits of Malacca trading hub, the city is known for its British colonial buildings, Chinese shophouses and mosques. Beyond the old town,
George Town is a modern city with skyscrapers and shopping malls.
Named after King George III, walking down the streets of Georgetown is like walking through the paths of history. As acknowledgment of its well-preserved cultural and historical heritage, the city was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on
the 7th of July 2008.
