Beach Street @ Georgetown

Some of the best examples of colonial architecture are located at Penang's banking district at Beach Street

The Royal Bank of Scotland

Other well preserved colonial buildings

While walking along Beach Street, I also manage to spot a couple in a middle of photo shoot for their wedding album

Those who familiar with Tiger Balm ointment should able to recognize this insignia on this building

The famous Ghee Hiang shop is located at this street as well. I believe this is their first shop. This brand is famous for their sesame oil, cookies, coffee and wide array of pastries.

I also saw a shop specializing in selling Swiss Army Knifes and its product.

The majestic Fire Brigade
