  • It is located near in the heart of Georgetown, Cometa Tower market. Building in grocery stores and grocery shops and stalls are restaurants outside of the building. For tourists who utilize local shoppers, was very crowded, but without leprosy was excellent.

  • Morning market with a good variety of fresh meat and veg including some specialities , such as live snakehead fish ( ikan haruan 生鱼)which is not easily available in other markets.
  • Perfect place to have breakfast between locals and enjoy a great freshly brewed coffee. I can recommend the koay teow th'ng (noodle soup), which was very tasty and only 4 RM.
  • The best nasi padang@indonesian in town. Just next to Chowrasta Market. Simple choice but you know every bite is yummy!
  • Morning market frequented by locals. Good pace to get a local feel. Can be very crowded. Prepare to share tables with others. I tried the wan ton mee for breakfast. Not bad.
  • Hong Kong Style Chee Chong Fun is very smooth and nice.

Where to stay in George Town

As an established tourist destination, George Town offers a range of options making use of the city's famous architectural diversity, with boutique hotels in the old town themed around the history of the building they occupy. For such singular accommodations, expect to pay a little more. Budget hotels and unbranded local options provide a comfortable night sleep at an affordable rate. The coastal areas offer more expensive resort-style luxury rooms with sea views, while away from the beaten track, you'll find backpacker hostels providing good options for those wanting to keep on the move.
