The article started by stating that Asia was once only reserved for wealthy merchants, ambassadors, and colonial elite. Now, it is much easier for all of us to travel considering that we have cheap airplane tickets. Thank you, AirAsia. Not to mention, it is also easier for all of us to find accommodations in foreign places as the Internet brings everything a little bit closer.

Springer mentioned that Penang is a wonderful place for its food and architecture. Georgetown, our main city, is beautiful with British colonial architecture, Buddhist temples, and also Chinese manor houses. We bet that she’s talking about the buildings located at Beach Street, Peranakan Mansion, Blue Mansion, and our beautiful temples scattered around town!

Of course, food was also mentioned in the article. Some highlights include our signature Hokkien Mee, Roti Canai, and also Penang’s Laksa. Without a doubt, Penang is a very beautiful place. At times, it feels like we are taking it for granted as we are so used to living here. It is time to play tourist in our little island, and start the marveling at everything Penang has to offer. Food trip, anybody? Thank you CNN Travel!
