When the sun goes down, Pulau Pinang – also known as Penang – is a boisterous and active place. The Penang Night Tour is a great way to experience the island’s best-known after-dark attractions; start out the evening with a visit to the ever-popular Gurney Drive. Home to a string of restaurants including the Gurney Drive Hawker Centre, it’s the perfect place to sample authentic Penang cuisine including asam laksa, char kway teow and hokkien mee; the area is arguably Penang’s noisiest avenue when the sun goes down. Next head on over to Penang’s tallest building, the 12-sided geometric shaped KOMTAR Tower.
Later on that night you will be treated to a truly Malaysian cultural affair – a night market; also known as a pasar malam, where you can purchase a plethora of items from souvenirs and apparel to local delicacies and fresh produce. You’ll definitely get more bang for your buck at this shopping haven and it’s the perfect way to wrap up your night – walk the street, snack on titbits and share a smile or two with the ever-friendly merchants.
