  • Probably there will be interesting for those who like India. I am somehow indifferent, so Street special emotions not delivered. Besides Indian Temple Street was closed for repairs and outside zaveshan construction netting. And high purity on the street I haven't noticed, though perhaps compared to India purely. Once you can walk to soothe the conscience.

  • During the day is a fairly ordinary, easily navigable, an artery that goes from the sea towards the center of Georgetown. In the evening it becomes completely and become the cultural centre of gastronomy in Georgetown, with an amazing Indian influence. Apart from the Scriptures on billboards of eateries in Sanskrit, people turning, the scents, colors seem to be a small India anywhere of that wonderful country. A strange thing because normally in Penang are the mistress the Chinese with restaurants and shops. We went out from our hotel a minute later we were full in Little India. Many bars with giant screens for sport, curry smell everywhere and fun colors at all hours of the night. If you want to eat later definitely the place to be searched. Less Street food compared to other roads but definitely very entertaining and very unexpected. Prices, to laugh.

  • 皇后街是一個小印度,裡面比較多印度人聚集,因此裡面的小店售賣的貨品大多都是印度有關的貨品/ 小食,如果希望可以感受一下印度特色及試一試正宗印度小食,不妨到這兒逛一逛。
