Penang is renowned globally for its iconic dishes, and is one of the top ten cities for best street food. The hawker stalls offer a wide selection of delicious food and is always buzzing with people, often attracting more crowds by night time. Well preserved colonial building structures painted in subtle colours form the backdrop, highlighting diverse architectural styles juxtaposed with urban contemporary life.
