Penang Road



As one of the busiest roads in George Town, Penang Road (or Jalan Penang) is also the main road used by most people traveling in George Town city center. There are a number of smaller roads that connect with Penang Road along the way.

It was found that Penang Road was the first major road built during the British time in Penang and appeared in the original town map created by Sir Francis Light.
