As I had visited 5 times before I didn’t really want to hang around in Penang especially as it would be at the expense of beach time in Southern Thailand. Got the visa sorted within a couple of days with no difficulties and Tack got a good taster of the city. One thing I had forgotten about was the abundance of excellent cheap street food. The local Chicken Rice is fantastic and puts the Thai version of Khaw Man Kai to shame and it was good to see that my favorite Indian restaurant is still there at the top end of Chulia St. The best Indian food since I have left the UK.
