What you'll do
Families that walk together stay together. Thus, children accompanying their parents on this tour walk for free. We will take a walk along a heritage trail that I have carefully charted. During the tour, I will point out bits and pieces of physical but not obvious historical evidences. These are evidences of forgotten stories: stories of love and hate, of joy and anguish, of unrequited love and last goodbyes, of turmoil and peace, even of babies, mommies and daddies, including the mysterious dragon and the horned lion in Chinese mythology.
Hi. There is so much to love about Penang, the city I call home. There is so much to see, so much to enjoy, and so much to engage in. Yet, there is so little time to do so for the casual visitor. Come walk with me, and let me thrill you with insights of the places you visit and the things you see. Let me tell you about the various communities of people who had come to our shores from different places of the world, and of course, the legacies they had left behind.

Where you'll be
We will learn about the Armenians, the Arab traders from Acheh, powerful Chinese clan leaders; why they came and what they contributed to the development of Penang. We will visit Canon Square where opposing gangs fought to the death (1867) and the famous Clan Jetties where early Chinese arrivals were housed. En route, we will be amused by street arts and metal rod arts so legendary of Penang.
