After a bit of post travel bloging I realised we had visited quite a few UNESCO heritage listed sites during our last spot of travelling. So I got Liz to put together a page highlighting which sites we had visited, have a look at the menus above, which not only showed us what we had seen, but also what we had missed in places we had passed through. In future we will be keeping a little list with us to try see a few extras as they are always some of the highlights of our journeys.
Getting off the bus at the main Penang bus station and into a cab we were greeted with a very talkative driver who gave us a run down on all his island had to offer. He was also very proud to tell us today was the anniversary of Georgetowns Unesco listing a few years ago, which became more apparent as we entered town to find blocked off streets and traffic jams.
So after dumping our bags in the hotel we wandered out to see what was going on.
What we we found was a very multicultural street festival, where you traded real money for pretend cents to buy all sorts of treats.
I liked the yellow one, yum.
More of the fabulous street satay.
What a fantastic first hour in Georgetown, I was pretty excited to be here.
