3. Sat­isfy Your In­ner Ar­chi­tec­ture Nerd

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Ar­chi­tec­ture lovers, as­sem­ble! Pe­nang’s colo­nial his­tory means that it’s brim­ming with beau­ti­ful build­ings: Set out for the Blue Man­sion (14 Leith St., Ge­orge­town, Pe­nang, pic­tured left), which got its name from its ec­cen­tric blue-washed walls. The 19th cen­tury man­sion breathes a Euro­pean flair into tra­di­tional Chi­nese ar­chi­tec­ture with Gothic lou­vered win­dows and geo­met­ric tiles.

Af­ter that, swing by St. Ge­orge’s Church (1 Le­buh Far­quhar, Ge­orge­town, Pe­nang), the old­est Angli­can Church in South­east Asia, to catch a glimpse of its tall Doric col­umns and sharp steeple.
