Five Photos From… Georgetown, Penang

It’s been over a year already since my highlight of my Asian travels – Penang in Malaysia!

And that’s pretty scary – time really does fly!

I’ve recently been looking back at my photos of the many memorable sights from Malaysia’s only predominantly Chinese region. And whilst moping about how long ago it now seems I was struck with an idea for this post…

With UNESCO World Heritage listed Georgetown’s many historic Straits Chinese shophouses, temples and clanhouses, I thought a vintage look to these photos would be the perfect fit. So have a look and see what you think of my retro styled shots of gorgeous Georgetown!
