George Town is a great place for antique hunters and vintage lovers. One can spend a whole day hunting for Nyonya porcelain, lacquerware and pottery along stores on Penang Road and Chulia Street. For those who prefer to shop in comfort and from a more curated collection, there are antique outlets in malls like Gurney Plaza as well.
Experience real Penang indulgence at luxury spas or seek out traditional Asian medicine practitioners to melt those worries away. Finish off a relaxing day with retail therapy at a night market.
When the sun goes down, the action heats up! Shopping malls and shops don’t close until 10pm so there’s plenty of time to wander around and work up a thirst at the many watering holes in George Town and the beach area of Batu Ferringhi.
