Another article extolling something great about my home for the last 9 years – Penang, Malaysia. More specifically – Georgetown – the main city on the small island. This article now claims that Georgetown is the new hipster destination. Read the Wanderluxe article here.
Penang is a special and unique spot. The culture – a vibrant mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian – has created an amazing array of some of the best food on the planet and some of the more unique street scenes in Southeast Asia.
Penang heritage is second to none. Home to one of the two prominent Straits Settlements in the Strait of Malacca, Georgetown is full of unique and beautiful buildings, currently stocked with cozy cafes and delicious dives.
Over the last couple of years, Penang has been voted one of the top places to retire in the world. It has been granted the status of best Asian street food.
It’s a beautiful, inexpensive, tropical island with some of the world’s best food. What more do you want!
It’s my writer’s oasis.
