Get festive in Penang
George Town shines during festivals. You can bet on lots of great food, performances and interesting things to see and do with the family. At the end of November, you can catch the George Town Literary Festival (keep your eyes peeled for special programmes for kids), the Little Penang Street Market, an artsy, community-run market that takes place on the last Sunday of every month, and the In-Between Arts Festival, an offshoot from the George Town Festival. The arts festival will include traditional arts performances (think gamelan and wayang kulit), food, films, live doodling artists and even a storytelling session for kids (you must RSVP for this).
