  • The city of George is an area with many attractions, wall-painted street, family name Bridge, Ben Lane, the mother's museum and so on, all in the city of George. It brings together traditional western and traditional South Asian cultures and walks in, giving you a sense of a trip back to the past. Renting a bike or a bicycle will make the whole trip more comfortable and see more things. This side of the seafood row, the price is reasonable, you can feast on the East Asian style of sour and spicy seafood cuisine. In addition, in 檳 city, using Uber as a means of transportation is much cheaper than taking a taxi, and more people are even cheaper than the public transport.
