Penang 6D5N Year-End Trip 槟城年尾之旅


December 20, 2016 (Tuesday)

Buffet Breakfast @ Sun Cafe, Sunway Hotel Georgetown

The buffet breakfast serves from 6:30AM to 10:30AM. It has a good range of food variety, both local and Western. I really enjoy its Nasi Lemak with Sambal sauce, one or two sliced-boiled eggs. We Malaysians really enjoy eating rice (if you haven't notice).

The buffet breakfast is RM20 nett per pax, and it is included in our room package.

First day in Penang. First, we decided to visit the town center, and get used to the road a bit. The truth is, driving in Penang and Kota Kinabalu is two different thing. Not only the roads here are much narrow, but also drivers here are mostly less tolerable. In just a difference of seconds, car drivers or motorcyclists will sound their honks impatiently (the fact is, Penang is the second state which suffers bad traffic after Kuala Lumpur).

Side track a bit. There were so much annoyance causing by its traffic. Its such a shame that drivers nowadays have such bad road etiquette: honking, cutting roads without signaling, bad temper, and etc. In addition, as Penang is getting more and more tourists to visit annually, the roads here are not even pedestrian-friendly; for instance, insufficient zebra-crossing line and over-head pedestrian bridge. Like seriously, there are much for improvement. (purely my thoughts...)

We parked our car at a private car park near to Fort Cornwallis. About 5 minutes walk down the road (towards the entrance of Fort Cornwallis), you won't miss the Clock Tower which is erected on the roundabout.

The Queen Victoria Memorial Clock Tower (a.k.a. Jubilee Clock Tower), is a Moorish-style Jubilee clocktower built by a local millionaire, Cheah Chen Eok, to commemorate Queen Victoria's 1897 Diamond Jubilee (60-year). The tower is sixty feet tall - one foot for each year of Queen Victoria's reign. However, the clock tower was only completed in 1902 when Her Majesty had passed away. It is much unnoticeable that the clock tower is slightly tilted, as a result of bombing during the Second World War.

As it started to rain, we didn't spend much time at the clock tower.
