I am staying near Chulia Street and enjoying the night life in the area. A ton of bars, restaurants, and street food available, Seems like there is live music in the area every night. This is a fun place to be!

One of the best area to stay in Georgetown. Hostel, hotel, cafe, bar, food etc one of the best attractions and all in one area. You can walk around and you'll find everything there.

This street will stay unique for a long time to come! Very typical Chinese, where it is impossible to have a simple stroll down the pedestrian walk ways, as they are clattered with motor bikes, people working on it or just dangerous holes on it...More
