The City After Dark

loading

Every last Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the month (i.e. the last entire weekend that falls within the month), Penang's Tourism Office arranges a panoply of heritage and cultural events. On the Fridays of this weekend,the George Town Night Trail offers the opportunity to learn about history and heritage in the relative cool and tranquility of the early evening.

The two-hour guided walk begins at the Whiteaways Arcade, next to the Penang Tourist Centre on Lebuh Pantai. There are three themed tours that rotate every three months: the Indian and Muslim heritage trail, the China Town and Clan Jetties trail, and the British colonial legacies trail.
