When I was back to Penang few weeks ago, I rushed to check out Straits Quay at Sri Tanjung Pinang, a reclaimed land somewhere between Tanjung Bungah and Tanjung Tokong, it’s a new area on the island and it’s the latest seafront hangout place in Penang. Yo. A combination of residences and commercial place, this place is cool and I am so proud of being a Penangite.
The place is very nice, by the sea and it’s a little mall with seafront promenade, having cafe, bistro, restaurants and some shoplots. Unfortunately, not all the shops are opened, it’s only part of it which make it kinda quiet at the moment.
And the best part is the seafront view. There’s one place where you can overlook the Gurney Drive and the coastal of Penang, and it looks a bit like Victoria Harbour or Avenue of Stars in Hong Kong just that we don’t have high skyscrapers and beautiful expensive light shows.
Although there’s nothing much there, crowds started flowing in slowly. There’s a fireworks display and Christmas countdown celebration at here too.
Still looking forward to more shops opening at there and some great development of Penang island. Yo.
