It's very convenient, by just walking we could visit most nice places, doing our shopping at our leisure, visit famous tourist spots and enjoying our favourite food at the popular eating spots. That's why I want to come back to visit Penang every year to do these activities and making sure we stay at this Hotel Malaysia with free parking.
