  • I visited Penang Island several times, but this is the first time to visit this area. I think that the Hindu temple and the shopping district are a place where it is pleasant to walk in the town. Because it was a visit on the tour, it was a whirlwind visit without time, but I wanted to drink it India tea.

  • It's called Little India, the area between the Choria Street and the Pan Thailand, and the Masjit Capitane Klin Street. There are certainly many people in this area who are India, and there was a unique atmosphere in the shops selling Sally and India restaurants. Consequent feel like I saw one end of Malaysia.
