Overview of your George town tour:

A trip down the memories of George Town, how it all began, understanding of local cultures, an unique melting pot , a former trading port of various cultures, incorporated with mystical and bizarre practice , a visit to historical past of multiple cultures of Asians and Europeans influences like going back in time . Going through the many lanes and alleys with historical stories, in particular the Streets of Harmony where all four faith of beliefs , Christianity, Taoism & Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam co-exist together. A reveal of architecture in relation of many communities, exotic and peculiar practice and living heritage to explore. As a tourist guide born and bred in Penang Island , I am extremely excited to promote the heritage values of Penang and the main centre of George Town in particular. A visit to historical monuments in George Town itself will expose how the existence of this island.
