My favourite things in Georgetown Penang

     
I am glad to be able to see The Blue Mansion for our good friends The Poupounette. It is also called the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion after the 1st Chinese Consul of Penang. There are tour guides and of course a portion of the mansion is reserved for paying guests. 
I also saw the marvelous Street Art of Georgetown (the capital of Penang). Georgetown is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has art prices dotted around all the streets done by the artists from Penang. 
Wall mural Boy on Chair. The chair is a real one. 
        'Rope Style'. Rope Walk was named after the rope making activities on the street. This is part of the 'voices of the people' series. This is one of the 52 rod iron sculptures that dot the capital. 
As its a World Heritage City, most tourists go about in these 4-seater vehicles although there are cars and motorcycles along the very narrow streets as well. 

The following are my 3 favourite doors along the same street of our hotel. They are very different and have their own voices as well.

Thank you so much for the wonderful photos. Georgetown is a very special place (and great food too!). It was lovely to see the Blue Mansion again. Such happy memories.

Thank you for the lovely photos. They certainly brought back memories of Beautiful Penang. Did you take the little train up the mountain? We think the kitties will be pleased to see you upon your return.
