Straits Quay, Penang Island

3.4
Set against the reflection of the harbor lights on the water, Straits Quay represents a collection of shops with a maritime setting. Browse through the clothing stores, sip a coffee at a cafe, or go on a hunt for souvenirs at one of the gift shops that line the marina. In the early evening the mall is quiet, and the breeze through the open-air kiosks welcomes walkers. At night the mall becomes abuzz with energy as the restaurants and bars fill up with people wanting to experience the nightlife. Stop at the supermarket for some fresh sushi, and then find a bench from which to admire the yachts in the harbor.

  • The space is very comfortable. There's a coffee shop, a gift shop. Unfortunately, the stationed store is not much, or it will stay longer, and Starbucks has another door that can be seen on the side of the sea to drink coffee is very good only pity that it rained

  • I would recommend BOSE to anyone who love good sound quality. Unlike most of the premium headphones, Bose have quite reasonable price. They don't have the best bass, but the quality of the sound you have to hear it to believe it. As for the speakers, just go and experience, you will be amazed.
  • Good customer service
  • Good service and products but expensive

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.
