Penang Districts

Many people coming to, or contemplating coming to, Penang will likely be trying to get some kind of idea as to what the areas are like that they keep seeing people discuss on forums and such like. Tanjung (Tg) Tokong, Tg Bungah, Batu Ferringhi, Gurney, Georgetown, Little Inida etc etc etc. The names crop up all the time but until you actually GET here it's hard to get a feel or even a glimpse, of what they are like.

So, in an attempt to remedy this to some degree I intend over the coming weeks to take several general views of the areas in question and post them up under a separate title for each area to give people SOME idea of what these places are like. Where appropriate I will try to get in some night shots also (not really needed at Tg Tokong and Bungah as there is little to see at night, different to Gurney, Batu Ferringhi and Georgetown). In cases where a night shoot is needed I'll likely do a 'By Day' and 'By night' subject rather than cram them all under one heading. It won't be ideal but I figure it'll be better than nothing. Hopefully I shall be able to start next week with Tg Tokong and then Gurney.

  3. I am really looking forward to this as well. I am in the UK and as you say it is difficult to get an idea of the different areas.
