Penang’s George Town has gained the UNESCO World Heritage title 3 years back and restoration work of old colonial houses and shop lots can be seen all over the town. Some of these old colonial houses turn into accommodation, cafe, shops, and of course an 3D art gallery. In fact, the whole architecture is a piece of art.
There are already some nice cafe and accommodation hotel which are restored from the old colonial houses and will soon increases more and more. I have been in search of this kind of place all over George Town to chill and enjoy the restored architecture. Muntri Street (Lebuh Muntri) is a nice street with many old colonial shophouses and it’s getting more and more famous to tourist as the increasing of the backpacker guesthouse.
MoonTree 47 is a cafe, art gallery cum homestay which is located on Muntri Street. It blue exterior attracted me to check out the place. I went there for lunch few days back and it was a fruitful meal.
Upon entering the place, I come across many antique art pieces like old door and furniture which spice up the place.
I was trilled and excited to see the antique-ish interior. The decoration of the heritage interiors give a sense of relaxing and throw my mind away. It made me want to sit down and surf the Internet all day long in MoonTree 47 and sip their homemade coffee.
It gives me a feel of not belonging to Penang, it’s like out of the busy city, slow, steady and chilling.
MoonTree 47 houses a variety of vintage antique collection. Vintage classic furniture, photos, camera, radio, photos and more. It’s a nice little museum that have other functions e.g. cafe, homestay. =)
A little bit of green sparks up the place too as you know it’s the “Go Green” era. How can a place full of art pieces be complete without green arts? It truely blended a fresh and sense of nature into a vintage space.
How I wish I could spend time online and forget about all the misery and the coming stressful days.
Look at how they decorate the washing area. They are just old items reused and decorated with some colours, mirror and green. It’s just so perfect in match.
If got a chance, I’m gonna visit it again and relax myself at there with some nice coffee and MacBook. =D Forgot to mention, free wifi is available. Hehe.
