GEORGETOWN HERITAGE WALK-PENANG thur17nov2011








the english builtmany fine buildings when they took over from the dutch.first stop was fort cornwallis,early 18800s.during the walk we stopped at art gallery and really enjoyed exhibition of eric quah.then another mansion-also a boutique hotel-not as good as yesterday and not worth the entrance fee.called in at museum to find it about to close-5pm,closed tomorrow=friday,so will come back sat.then another chinese temple,old , church,mosque,and indian temple-4 different religions in one street.that led us into little india-they are all the same-colourful,busy and noisy.another busy interesting day.we like penang but enjoyed malacca and ipoh more-more compact,friendly and better restaurants.
