Yep, due to scarcity of land most Penangites live in high-rise residentials. I live in one as well. In fact, the price of property in Penang is comparable or even more expensive than KL therefore not many Penangites can afford landed properties especially if you want to live nearer to the city centre, Georgetown.

Due to Penang's international appeal (Penang has the most expatriates living under Malaysia's My Second Home programme) high-end apartments have sprout up all over the island especially along Gurney Drive and the northern tip of Batu Ferringhi.

With a total area of 1,046.3 kmē and a population of 1.2 million, Penang has 5 international schools, 6 public hospitals and 11 private hospitals, one public university and 19 private colleges offering degree courses with international collaboration with universities in Britain, Australia, USA etc (also the education hub of northern Malaysia), 2 stadiums, 4 golf courses, a turf club, a botanical gardens, a national park (world's smallest at 2,562-hectare), a modern port and an international airport.

Penang is also home to the oldest English school (Penang Free School), girls school (Convent Light Street) and Anglican church (St.George) in South East Asia. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a food paradise (voted as having the best street food in Asia by TIME magazine)

Some famous Penangites: Jimmy Choo (yes, the shoe designer), Nicol David, world No.1 women's squash champion and Lee Chong Wei, currently ranked No.1 badminton player in the world

George Town. any close to BKK? i don't think so...

Pattaya (old photo i guess)
I was referring to a specific picture and not the whole city itself. Its strange that I haven't been to Penang. But sometime July my relatives will be going there to attend a convention. I'll be joining them and be taking some photos.
