About George Town

We ate our free breakfast which was basically bread and different spreads like peanut butter, blueberry jam etc. Hostel was quite comfortable, quite and calm. With clean Toilets and Showers. We got out rented a scooter which you can get for ₹500-550 a day without any hassles of international driving licence or anything. We went to the main areas in the afternoon, the famous wall murals, the fort, beach and enjoyed local and indian food as there is considerable amount of Indian Tamil population in Malaysia all across. In the evening we were just exploring the place without any specific plan and just kept driving into the town, the roads were beautiful and we ended at some sort of uphill trekking gate ( Moon Gate- to go up the Penang Hill) We ended up trekking up to the top as the local people said that the we would be able to see the entire Island from the top. ( 1 hour climbing stairs through trees! That too in denims! It was tough! XD ) The view from the top was gorgeous and people at the top were serving Coffee and tea along with biscuits! The natural beauty of the place was unmatchable. We could see the artificial islands from a spot there, it was a breathtaking view. We returned back to our hostel's area and explored the area around it in the night. There is a lot of streetfood in Malaysia. A lot of barbeque - Shrimps, prawns, Kebabs and a lot of tea and Pancakes! Burgers and fruit juices are cheap too. You can easily eat a meal for 7-8 Ringgits. Highlights of the day was renting a scooter so as we could go whenever and wherever we wanted! 🛵
