I went on a tour of George town and here are some things I learned…

  1. The name Penang comes from a translation of betel nut.

  2. In the word Penang the a says its name.

  3. Jimmy Choo came from Penang.

  4. Francis Light founded George town.

  5. When the Chinese came to George Town they separated into different clans  so depending on your family they’d help you like they would give you a place to stay,they would help you find a job and that kind of thing .

  6. It is common for British colonies to have a big grass area in front of their city hall and a clock  tower.

  7. Japanese in World War 2  bombed  St  George’s church because they thought it was the city hall.
