This is the street where I stayed.
The tall building on the right is called the KOMTAR building and it’s regarded as the centre of Penang.
It’s 65 floors high and was built in the 1970s and following a fire, was rebuilt in the 1980s.
Along with mostly government offices it also houses a large shopping mall and a bus station below.
