… Isle of Betel Nut
… Pearl of the Orient
… Food capital of Malaysia
Months before I stepped foot into this part of Malaysia, I only heard those tags above associated with the place. In fact, I never got interested in visiting the island until I joined an airline company 6 months ago.
Sometimes, being burned out helps you discover more places. Wonderful places! I got stressed one day and had been wanting to go somewhere to just roam around and ‘chillax’.
I searched for nearby places to spend the weekend and whoahlah!, an “Escape the Ordinary” ad popped up – “FREE THINGS TO DO IN PENANG”. 😮 Catchy for a low budget traveler like me! 😉
My hotel was in George Town, so immediately after checking in, I went out to explore the vintage-feel, history-rich streets of the town. Yeah! It is indeed, FREE!😊
