3) Hangout Places
a) Penang Esplanade
Known as Padang Kota Lama in Malay, this seafront promenade is just adjacent to Fort Cornwallis. Local families love spending their time here, especially in the evenings, and then grab supper at the Esplanade food court.
Within walking distance are buildings and landmarks with colonial architecture such as Queen Victoria Memorial Clock Tower, City Hall, State Legislative Assembly and Logan Memorial.
The Esplanade comes to life every first Saturday of the month where the island’s many different ethnic cultures are showcased through various performances and activities. This regular series of programmes is organised by the Penang State Tourism Development and Culture.
Add: Jalan Tun Syed Sheh Barakbah, 10300 Penang.
b) Tanjung City Marina
What we know as Tanjung City Marina was called Church Street Pier prior to 2005.
As Penang’s first inner city marina, this marina of world-class standard can accommodate vessels with maximum draft of up to 4 metres. It has 102 berths and can cater to 140 yachts and boats concurrently.
Just a short walk from Frank Swettenham Pier, Tanjung City Marina is a favourite hangout spot for both locals and tourists, especially boat lovers.
