Rock Spa, we decided to catch a cab to George Town for some shopping first before heading to the Street Art. Due to its well-preserved heritage buildings, this Penang Capital has been accorded a listing as a #UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
Cab fare in Penang is pretty stiff; RM40 from Hard Rock Hotel to George Town!! We were recommended to go to Komtar with malls inter-connecting one another. Guess what? We were done in less than 15 mins! Sad to say, two of the malls seemed old & quite boring. It was a Sunday, but a lot of shops were closed. We decided not to waste our time & look for a shuttle service to Street Art instead.
We took a vote & thought we should stay on the spot to try our luck again. This time, we waited under the heat for another 30 mins! A bus came & it looked similar to the one we boarded earlier. We went up anyway & showed the driver where we wanna go, but met with the same "no, no" answer again :<
I’m really curious. If Street Art is a tourist attraction in #Penang, surely the shuttle bus drivers are aware & can recognize the pix on the brochure shown, even if they may not understand English or Mandarin? I really hope the Tourism of Penang will make an effort to make it easier for tourists to venture around.
