Did you know that Penang has a thriving street art scene? I had heard from other travelers that Penang was at the epicenter of art culture in Southeast Asia. For some reason, I always thought that art was a part of Penang culture until I met my Airbnb host Sek who was able to give me more insight. He is a local from Penang and spent time living in Kuala Lumpur and the US.

When you speak to any Malaysian person and ask them “Where is the best food in Malaysia?” they will tell you Penang. “Why is the Penang food so good?” I wondered. I watched the Anthony Bourdain episode on Penang and had more of a broad understanding of it and the Chinese influence on the cuisine there.
