A Smart Traveller’s Guide in Exploring George Town in Penang, Malaysia

Inform yourself about the ideal Penang accommodation when visiting George Town and some tips to take note before proceeding to your exciting trip.

Tips for the Smart Traveller Visiting George Town

Travel141 | Cititel Express Penang

Before you pack your bags and head straight to George Town, make sure you tick all the items below.

  1. Travel light. As a traveller, it does not make sense to bring your whole closet with you. Select your all-around shoes, practical clothes, and an easy-to-carry backpack for your essentials.
  2. Exchange extra money in case of an emergency. We never know what will happen on our travels, so it’s recommended that you bring extra money in the country’s currency.
  3. Respect the place and the locals. As a visitor in their place, a traveller’s courtesy is required. If you want to take photos, ask them first so as to not become rude. Some locals dislike getting their picture taken.
  4. Create an itinerary. To maximize your stay at George Town, map out the places you want to visit. Don’t’ forget to put a “free-time” for you to aimlessly wander in the city. It’s good to explore on your own, too!
  5. Book ahead of time. Having a place to stay is a top priority. Book early to your ideal accommodation.

Travel broaden my horizons and learn more about other cultures so that i can have more respect for one another. • • It was my first time i made a visit to a Mosque in my life. I was born in a country where 87% of population are Muslim, but i didn’t get a chance to visit any of mosque. However, attracted to its architecture, i finally managed to visit not only one but two mosques in a day when we were in KL. • • We had a fruitful visit to this beautiful mosque, learnt about what are the things inspired their architectural and admire Islamic cultures perfectly crafted on every corner of the mosque, the Arabesque pattern and the beautiful calligraphy on the Arches, Dome, Main Prayer Halls and Verandah spaces.. Thanks Kak Rose for sharing your thoughts, it was such an eye opening tour. #YuniQuetravels #YuniInKL #MalaysiaTrulyAsia Thanks @blackivory for the lovely shot..
