    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Little India - Penang, Queen Street and Penang Street Malaysia

    Discover the little known story of Little India's past, as we explore this vibrant and eclectic enclave. We'll enjoy local Malaysian-Indian snacks, dishes and drinks, and learn about the role Indian migrants played in building the city we love today.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Armenian Street, Lebuh Armenian, George Town, Penang Island Malaysia

    We'll unravel the tumultuous history of Penang in the 19th century - the drama of colonisation and migration, the political machinations of Clans and Tycoons & the struggle of ordinary people to make a home away from home. We'll try some local Malaysian-Chinese dishes and discover stories of Penang few people know exists.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Chulia Street, Lebuh Chulia, George Town, Penang Island Malaysia

    We'll complete our journey in this bustling street that is finding its new identity as a nightlife and street food hub. But its history goes deeper than that. We'll have dessert while discussing the evening's experience and reflect on our exploration.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Despite having foolishly eaten too much at lunchtime to properly do justice to the wide variety of foods that Little India, mostly, and Chinatown, had to offer, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour, Daniel’s wide historical knowledge and hispassion for Penang food.
