Description

George town is among one of the very few places in this region where dying cultural trades continue to strive. Witness the making of Chinese spring roll wrappers at the Chowrasta wet market, where grocery & livestock are traded. At a nearby alley, admire the art of joss-sticks making, some with intricate dragon motif. Proceed to see the baking of the popular "Tao Sa Peah" biscuits and Nonya Kueh - the authentic Malay desserts. Tour continues to check out Penang's original products such as the medicated "nutmeg oil". Tour ends with a taste of Penang's White Coffee at Coffee Tree.
