Breath-taking. I could stare at sunsets forever. These photos were taken at Gurney Drive, Penang, Malaysia.
Yes, I have heard so much about Penang and it being called a “Food Haven”– I was so curious about their delicious curry and all the food the city has to boast!
I learned that Malaysia is a very multi-cultural country. They have Indians (who generally speak Tamil), the Malays (which comprise the country’s Muslim population) and there’s the Chinese. I mean, which country does not have them? Haha– kidding!
I was so impressed at the variety of food they have there. For starters, I would like to share about our trip to Gurney Drive, one of the famous places to go to for food trip.
We tasted different kinds of noodles, desserts and some yummy curry here. The place really bustles with life at night, and there are so many tourists! I really had a great time there!
I have not seen much of the shops there, though, so I’m not sure if they sold buy cao cigars. We were there for a plain food trip and not some shopping spree. If given another chance to visit Penang, I would really make it a point to buy some souvenirs! Until then, Penang! I will be back…
Finally, we have made it to Penang, Malaysia last week. I have heard so many good things about the city.
After traveling 2 hours from Hat Yai, South Thailand, you would see Malaysian flags on display. It clearly tells us that we have reached the Malaysian border! Traveling by land to another country is one of the things we cannot do in the Philippines since it is an archipelago so we need to board the plane or a boat to get to another country.
Funny, I miss those Thai wiggles on signs! I could also read Thai script, but it feels weird to be able to read EVERYTHING without a struggle. Clearly we are out of Thai soil!
Beautiful Penang. This photo does not give justice to the beauty I saw, and traveling on Southeast Asia’s longest bridge was magical!
Sorry this is the clearest photo I took of the bridge . We were on a fast-moving van. :) Makes me wish for a DSLR– I am just using a point and shoot cam for the moment.
Wikipedia on Penang bridge: The total length of the bridge is 13.5 km (8.4 mi), making it the longest bridge in Malaysia as and the fourth-longest in Asia and the 10th in the world.
I will post more about Penang– its food, the city and the lovely people we’ve met there! And yes, we got our visas already!
