The lure of water

IN PENANG, THE WATER ELEMENT AND THE WATERFRONT HAVE FEATURED PROMINENTLY IN THE LIVES OF PENANGITES.

To stroll along the waterfront, enjoying the evening air with family and friends, have been a favourite pastime. To eat at street stalls here was a treat too good to miss. To do absolutely nothing here and just watch the ships and yachts go by was totally permissible and a uniquely Penang thing to do.

People of Penang have a special love of water, inspired by nature's beauty and bounty pervading their beloved island. Waterfalls, rivers, lakes and ponds in which to catch tiny fish were all part of the fun and charm of a blessed and simple Penang life for both young and old.

Both the lure of water and waterfront attractions will be revived once again here in THE LIGHT.
