Begin with pickup at your George Town city or Penang beach hotel, then travel to Gurney Drive Hawker Centre in an air-conditioned vehicle. Gurney Drive is home to the largest variety of street food on Penang island, and both locals and visitors line up elbow-to-elbow at long, communal tables.
Enjoy a menu that’s customized to your tastes and interests, sampling Penang dishes like Laksa — a spicy noodle soup that blends Chinese and Malay flavors — and Char Koay Teow, wok-fried rice noodles with crunchy bean sprouts, fresh herbs, cockles, prawns, and spicy sausage. The foods will be chosen from hundreds of stalls, and available dishes change with the season, but other Gurney Drive favorites include rich satay and grilled local fish.
After dinner, soak up the atmosphere of George Town's UNESCO-listed historic center on a short trishaw ride through the heart of the city. This tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel.
