Are you a foodie in search of fun and adventure? Then you’re sure to go gaga over Malaysia’s George Town. George Town is the capital city of Penang, a culturally diverse region that offers an equally diverse selection of street food. You’ll find a dizzying array of different styles, flavors and textures, incorporating elements of traditional Chinese, Malay, Singaporean and Indian fare.

If superb street food at ridiculously reasonable prices makes your mouth water, you may just want to plan a jaunt to George Town soon.
