George Town, the capital of Penang, is a city located on the north-east corner of Penang Island. The metropolitan area, with a combined population of more than 2.25 million, is the second largest in Malaysia. The inner city of George Town has a population of about 720,000 and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognised for its unique architectural and cultural townscape.
I have enjoyed exploring the city on foot. However, a rickshaw ride is a good alternative if your feet are tired.
